What we test

MTHFR Mutations

Two relatively common DNA sequence variants known as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are tested. These two MTHFR variants are called C677T and A1298C and individuals can inherit one or both variants.

This MTHFR gene test measures:

If someone has two copies of the MTHFR C677T, or one copy of C677T and one of A1298C, a decrease in the activity of MTHFR enzyme slows down the homocysteine conversion process leading to a build-up of homocysteine in the blood.

If someone has two copies of the MTHFR C677T, or one copy of C677T and one of A1298C, a decrease in the activity of MTHFR enzyme slows down the homocysteine conversion process leading to a build-up of homocysteine in the blood.
