Aminopterin inhibits serine decarboxylation in rat liver homogenates. Dietary deficiency of folic acid in rats also reduces serine decarboxylase activity. Folic acid does not influence serine deamination, but glycine to serine synthesis is impaired in a dietary deficiency of the vitamin. In folic acid deficiency liver and blood levels of choline are also lowered.
