SNPs affect folate metabolism in study of Puerto-Rican adults
...on, four SNPs in two genes involved in folate metabolism previously associated with altered blood folate and homocysteine concentrations were studied: methylenetetrahydrofolate
reductase (MTHFR) and methionine synthase (MTR).
SNPs are variations in the sequence of nucleotides, or building blocks, that make up genes. Human...
MUHC researchers make cancer target breakthrough
..., the researchers document a reduction in the growth of both colon and lung cancer tumors with inhibition of the gene.
The new target gene is called methylenetetrahydrofolate
reductase, or MTHFR. Researchers were able to inhibit the function of the gene by creating antisense--an exact opposite of a tiny section of the MTHFR...
