BACKGROUND Folate plays a pivotal role in DNA synthesis, repair, methylation and homocysteine (Hcy) metabolism. Therefore, alterations in the folate-mediated one-carbon metabolism may lead to abnormal methylation proliferation, increases of tumor/neoplasia and vein thrombosis/cardiovascular risk. The serine hydroxymethyhransferase (SHMT), methionine(More)
Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) is an important, independent risk factor for coronary artery disease, especially for the myocardial infarction. Our previous study has shown that myocardial stem cell factor (SCF) mediated cardiac stem cells migration, which was involved in cardiac repair. However, it is not clear regarding the action of HHcy on the expression of(More)
