SNP information rs1801133

Normal allele: GG

A gene fragment known as MTHFR C677T, which encodes an enzyme involved in folic acid metabolism. A break in this gene fragment results in high levels of homocysteine, low levels of B12 and folic acid. If your tests show high homocysteine levels, your doctor will likely advise you on an appropriate diet and supplementation regime. Taking varieties of the active form of B9 methylfolate (5-MTHF or L-methyltetrahydrofolate), the active form of vitamin B12, methylcobalamin, is recommended to reduce your risks.

Polymorphism rs1801133 is related to topics like this:

Vitamin B9 (folic acid)
Vitamin B12
Methylation and homocysteine
