Amethopterin is a folic acid antagonist and potent anticancer agent. Amethopterin blocks DNA synthesis by preventing the production of tetrahydrofolate cofactors which are required to make thymidine. Amethopterin is actively transported into cells by the folate transporter where it is converted to a high molecular weight polyglutamate metabolite by folylpolyglutamate synthase, a dihydrofolate reductase inhibitor.
