SNP information rs1801394

Normal allele: AA

Polymorphism can lead to elevated homocysteine levels independent of folic acid, vitamin B12 or B6 levels. It is a risk factor for neural tube defects and Down syndrome in the setting of higher homocysteine levels.

Polymorphism rs1801394 is related to topics like this:

Vitamin B9 (folic acid)
Vitamin B12
Methylation and homocysteine
Mitochondrial function
Vegetarian diet
