Background Folate and its synthetic form folic acid function as donor of one-carbon units and have been, together with other B-vitamins, implicated in programming of epigenetic processes such as DNA methylation during early development. To what extent regulation of DNA methylatio [...]

We describe a patient who developed symptoms of headache, fatigue, and dizziness after administration of terbinafine (Lamisil). Laboratory tests revealed that he is heterozygous for the C677T variation of the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase genetic mutation. The prescription of Deplin [...]

The correlation between epigenetics and human reproduction represents a very interesting field of study, mainly due to the possible transgenerational effects related to epigenetic modifications of male and female gametes. In the present review, we focused our attention to the role played b [...]

Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) plays a key role in folate metabolism, and folate is implicated in carcinogenesis due to its role in DNA methylation, repair and synthesis. The MTHFR C677T polymorphism is associated with decreased risk of CRC and increased sensitivity to 5-FU tr [...]

Although combinations of biologically relevant polymorphic variants affect folate status, most studies have focused on the effects of individual polymorphisms; however, these effects may be altered by interactions between polymorphisms.We sought to investigate the individual and combined e [...]
