An authoritative panel of basic and clinical researchers critically reviews the latest findings on the role of folate in human development, health, and disease. Specific areas addressed include folate metabolism in zinc or copper deficiencies, choline and folate in development, animal models of folate-related birth defects, developmental toxicants potentially acting via folate perturbation, and folate's role in vascular disease in women. There are also cutting-edge discussions of genes and neural tube development, folate receptor polymorphism and the risk for neural defects, abnormal DNA synthesis and methylation with folate/methyl insufficiency, and folic acid and homocysteine as risk factors for neural tube defects.

Editorial Reviews

"This multi-author volume reads like a research symposium. Each chapter, written by experts in their field, can be read independently without reference to the others. There is considerable repetition with several chapters providing, for example, overviews of folate metabolism. This book represents an invaluable resource for anyone embarking on research in the field of folic acid and birth defects." - Human Genetics"Each chapter is very well referenced and up-to-date." -Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health"This book represents an invaluable resource for anyone embarking on research in the field of folic acid and birth defects. This book old be a valuable reference source in any department of human genetics." -Human Genetics
