Most supplements contain cyanocobalamin, which is readily converted to 5-deoxyadenosyl and methylcobalamin. In mammals, cobalamin is a cofactor for only two enzymes, methionine synthase and Lmethylmalonyl-CoA mutase. Methylcobalamin is required for the function of the folate-dependent enzyme, methionine synthase. This enzyme is required for the synthesis of the amino acid, methionine, from homocysteine. Methionine in turn is required for the synthesis of S-adenosylmethionine, a methyl group donor used in many biological methylation reactions, including the methylation of a number of sites within DNA and RNA.

Stem Cells: Science and Politics Stem cells are the precursors of all other cell types. They are undifferentiated cells that have the ability to form any cell type as well as to replicate into more stem cells. Stem cells are often called progenitor cells because of their ability to differentiate into many cell types. A pluripotent stem cell is one that can give rise to all cell types in an embryo or in an adult.
