The transfer of the methyl group from 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate to homocysteine forms methionine, a reaction also requiring cobalamin. If compensatory production of methionine is hindered by insufficient 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate level, and possibly cobalmine levels, the methyl supply for DNA methylation may be inadequate. Because these processes would appear to be important for cell types in general, it is possible that folate deficiency could be a risk factor for numerous cancer types. In fact, some supportive though inconclusive evidence exists for various cancer sites.
