MTHFR mutations detection
This test is used to detect one of two methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) mutations. Two common variants in the MTHFR gene result in reduced enzyme activity. The "thermolabile" variant C677T and A1298C occur frequently in the general population. Reduced MTHFR enzyme activity is a genetic risk factor for hyperhomocysteinemia, especially when present with low serum folate levels.
