Organism: Lactobacillus casei.
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Firmicutes; Bacilli; Lactobacillales; Lactobacillaceae; Lactobacillus.
Function: Conversion of folates to polyglutamate derivatives. It prefers 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate, rather than 10- formyltetrahydrofolate as folate substrate.
Catalytic activity: ATP + tetrahydropteroyl-(gamma-Glu)(n) + L- glutamate = ADP + phosphate + tetrahydropteroyl-(gamma-Glu)(n+1).
