    Over the last decade mild hyperhomocysteinaemia has widely been recognised as a new risk factor for arteriosclerosis and thrombosis. Main regulating enzymes of homocysteine (Hcy) metabolism are cystathionine β-synthase (CBS), methionine synthase and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase...

    This article evaluates the relationship between methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) expression in colorectal tumour tissue and the C677T polymorphism. Folate supplementation appears to reduce colorectal cancer (CRC) risk. CRC risk is also modulated by the C to T polymorphism at position...

    The article offers information on the polymorphism among 5, 10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene. It informs that MTHFR gene shows single nucleotide variation at codon 677 which encodes for thermolabile enzyme. It has been found that the polymorphism in MTHFR gene is maximum in...

    Abstract Folic acid (multivitamins) reduce the recurrence and occurrence of neural tube defects (NTDs). Vitamin profiles seem not suitable to identity women at risk for NTDs. A subset of these women have hyperhomocysteinaemia and a mutation of the gene for thermolabile methylenetetrahydrofolate...

    We report a 13-year-old girl with nephropathic cystinosis on chronic peritoneal dialysis who presented with two episodes of stroke. Laboratory evaluation showed severe hyperhomocysteinemia (108 �mol/1). Further testing revealed that she was homozygous for the thermolabile variant of the...

    Hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for early-onset venous thrombosis. It can be caused by genetic defects in methionine-homocysteine metabolism. The thermolabile variant of methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), c.677C>T, is one of the most common genetic condition, which has been...

    Henoch–Schonlein purpura (HSP) is a small-sized vasculitis affecting mainly children. Based on the hypothesis that an inherited predilection to hypercoagulability may predispose to HSP or may mark those who develop acute clinical manifestations, we evaluated the possible roles of...
