06/19/2017 Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 25902. From methylenetetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase (NADP+ dependent) 1-like to methylenetetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase (NADP+ dependent) 1 like.
The protein encoded by this gene is involved in the synthesis of tetrahydrofolate (THF) in the mitochondrion. THF is important in the de novo synthesis of purines and thymidylate and in the regeneration of methionine from homocysteine. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2011]
