Methylcobalamin

Pharmacodynamics:

Methylcobalamin is a active form of vitamin B12 that acts as cofactor for methionine synthase in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine thus lowering the blood levels of homocysteine. Methylcobalamin converts N-methyltetrahydro folate to tetrahydrofolate and eventually helps in the synthesis of DNA.

Pharmacokinetics:

Vitamin B12 binds with intrinsic factor secreted by parietal cells of stomach and forms Vitamin B12 intrinsic complex. This complex is then absorbed at the terminal portion of ileum. Vitamin B12 is then stored in the liver. Methylcobalamin is then transported to the tissue via plasma protein. Excretion of vitamin B12 occurs through urine and stool.
