The C677 Mutation in Methylene Tetrahydrofolate Reductase Gene: Correlation with Uric Acid and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Elderly Korean men

Abstract

The C677T mutation in the methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene results in elevated homocysteine levels and, presumably, in increased cardiovascular risk. Moreover, elevated homocysteine levels are reportedly associated with high serum uric acid levels. We evaluated the MTHFR genotype and a panel of biochemical, hematological variables, and… (More)
