1. Folate antagonist
One of a group of substances which blocks the formation of nucleotide s that require the presence of folate (one of the B vitamin s) before they can be made. The substance does this by blocking key steps in the reaction sequence. These substances are often used to treat cancer because fast-growing cancerous cell s usually need to use the blocked reactions more than normal cells do.
