BACKGROUND Homocysteine (Hcy) levels are modulated by nutritional and genetic factors, among which is the enzyme 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR). AIM To determine the effects of the MTHTR C677T polymorphism, as well as the intake of folate, vitamins B(6) and B(12) on serum Hcy concentration in the Polish population. METHODS Within the… CONTINUE READING
