Cobalamin (Vitamin B12) was discovered in the first half of the 20th century. Recently, the fast pace of development in research technologies has changed our understanding of the role of nutrients and the complex interaction between diet, environment, and diseases. This book offers deep insights into several aspects of cobalamin, such as its role as a methyl donor in elderly people and cancer patients. It also discusses genetic defects and molecular biology of cobalamin-dependent enzymes and transporters.
