What is MTHFR A1298C Gene Mutation ?

  3 years, 11 months ago

By Helen Janneson Bense

A1298C single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) affects the enzyme known as 5,10 MethyleneTetraHydroFolate Reductase (MTHFR). This polymorphism involves a down regulation of the MTHFR enzyme, responsible for the backwards reaction of the folate cycle, where 5-methylfolate (5MTHF) is converted into tetrahydrofolate (THF). This reaction is most important for the production of BH4 – tetrahydrobiopterin. Each turn of the folate cycle and conversion of 5MTHF to THF produces 1 molecule of BH4. In heterozygous and homozygous states, enzyme activity will be compromised by
approximately 30% and 70% respectively.

Functions of BH4
Cofactor for all three isotypes of nitric ... ..more

Spirulina has strong anti-microbial effects that help create a proper balance among the #gut flora. Spirulina is helpful in the gut because it helps to controlling the growth of pathogenic [Bad] #bacteria and #yeasts in the digestive system. A proper healthy balance of gut flora is critical for optimal digestion and nutritional absorption.

This question is hidden

These are the ultimate “bad guys” that roam from place to place stealing every cell’s positive energy and leaving them for dead. How are these criminals produced? Though there are many contributing factors, the Urea Cycle
( waste facility ) is by far, the largest free radical and oxidant producer in the community. Remember the waste facility aka #urea cycle is responsible for cleaning up most of the toxic waste generated within the community. Think of this cycle as your local garbage dump replete with trucks transporting recyclables and trash via the liver’s main highway ( #CBS ). In the Waste Facility ... ..more

Diabetes and Glaucoma: A New Perspective

A study at the University of Michigan found people with diabetes have a 35% higher chance of having Glaucoma than people who do not. The study went on to say the reason for the higher rates of glaucoma in diabetics is “unknown.” My purpose for writing this article is to explain the nutritional reasons that diabetes and glaucoma often go hand in hand.

Before going further, let me state this very clearly: The purpose of this article is to provide education. Both diabetes and glaucoma are serious ... ..more


It produces a defective MTHFR enzyme of different varieties i.e. it functions less than optimally, such as performing at only 40% of its capacity, or 70% of its capacity. It can mean you won’t break down toxins or heavy metals well i.e. you could find yourself with high iron, or high copper, or high mercury….etc. High copper can also cause low iron.
The defective enzyme doesn’t break down folate vitamins properly (of which folic acid is the precursor to), which can cause high homocysteine, which can increase your risk of coronary heart disease (arteriosclerotic vascular ... ..more

Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) supports one's health, well-being and detoxification and can be defective in a fairly large percentage of our population. About 45% of Caucasians, 70% of Hispanics and about 30% of southern Italians have a genetic defect.

The MTHFR gene produces the MTHFR enzyme. This enzyme is responsible for the circulating form of folate. Folate is very important in homocysteine regulation. The MTHFR enzyme metabolizes folic acid into 5-MTHF, which is needed to combine with homocysteine to break it down and to facilitate methylation (detoxification) processes in the body. The MTHFR enzyme is essential for the body to ... ..more

MTHFR C677T Mutation: Basic Protocol by Dr Lynch on February 24, 2012 in C677T MTHFR Mutations
Have one or two copies of the MTHFR C677T mutation? Don’t know what to do?

After working with 100′s of individuals with this defect, I’ve developed a protocol which may help a significant number of people.
I want to make it absolutely clear that while the MTHFR C677T mutation may be common across a number of individuals, the outcome of supplementing with various nutrients can vary tremendously due to other genetic defects, dietary and lifestyle choices and environmental exposures.

How does Methylation influence mood ?

  4 years, 3 months ago


It is important to understand the basics of methylation, and although a more detailed study of #methylation chemistry may be interesting, for our needs, it is not really necessary to study it here as it will only serve to confuse matters, so only the most important aspects will be considered.

Put simply, the methylation process makes #neurotransmitters (mood building blocks), and the issue of a person being an under or over methylator can be confusing, because there is contradiction between the various sources of information on the methylation process. For our purposes, we'll say that an over methylator is ... ..more

What does a CBS Gene Mutation mean ?

  4 years, 3 months ago

CBS (cystathionine beta synthase) catalyzes the first step of the transsulfuration pathway, from homocysteine to cystathionine. Dr. Yasko considers addressing CBS mutations as first priority aside from addressing the gut.
This enzyme converts homocysteine to cystathionine. In a separate reaction, cystathionine is then converted to cysteine which in turn goes to taurine or glutathione among other things.

CBS defects are actually upregulations. This means the enzyme works too fast. Therefore, it is common to see low levels of cystathionine and homocysteine since there is a rapid conversion to taurine. This leads to high levels of taurine and ammonia.

The upregulation ... ..more

What does this process look like when it’s broken? After reading the following, you will be able to envision the implications of defects or mutations. The following is an example of the health problems that might occur.
1. Poor nerve function leads to muscle twitching, numbness, and weakness yet misfires can cause seizures, fatigue, memory loss, word groping, clumsiness (with falls & injuries), and visual or hearing loss in those with MS, CFS/ME, or Autism Spectrum Disorders.

2. Depending on the neuro-talker, imbalances often lead to a variety of disorders including: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, irritability, mood swings, OCD ... ..more

What is the AHCY Mutation?

  4 years, 3 months ago

The AHCY (Adenosylhomocysteine Hydrolase) Mutation activates Homocysteine.
This defect is a prime example of just how challenging nutrigenomics medicine is, particularly when trying to sort through methylation’s domino effect. This zone activates SAM into Homocysteine, which is then utilized within the system or eliminated through the CBS enzyme. When AHCY defects are present, one could have the MTHFR C677T enzyme mutation yet still have normal homocysteine levels. And, if a coexisting CBS upregulation is present, homocysteine levels may be even lower, despite having complete C677T and/or BHMT defects. Furthermore, when such AHCY defects are present, there is less ... ..more

What is Homocysteine ?

  4 years, 3 months ago

#Homocysteine is a toxic waste by-product of protein and amino acid metabolism, and #methylation in the body is going on constantly, converting this damaging homocysteine into the #antioxidant #glutathione.
Methylation also converts homocysteine into an important biochemical called #SAMe , a vital methyl donor for the production of the all important neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and their derivatives. This is how the body makes good use of this toxic element.

Keeping homocysteine at a healthy, low level is extremely important for keeping our risk of heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer's disease as low as possible. High levels of homocysteine, if left ... ..more

CBS C699T cystathionine beta synthase AKA The Hole in the Bucket. This Priority # 3 Mutation
Tip! It is crucial to address any gut issues before you thoroughly address the CBS defect. Since chronic gut issues lead to higher bacterial loads, thus leading to higher ammonia production as well as leaky gut (reducing nutrient absorption and increased risk for food sensitivity) this area is paramount. You can begin to address the CBS prior to fully addressing gut issues though they should be done in concert. Since the CBS is one of the most important issues to address, I’ve decided to ... ..more
