DetailsDescription of SNP MTR/MTRR (methionine synthase/ methionine synthase reductase): These two gene products work together to regenerate and utilize B12 for the critical “long way” around the methylation pathway, helping to convert homocysteine to methionine. High levels of homocysteine have been implicated as risk factors in a number of health conditions including heart disease as well as Alzheimer’s disease. As is the case for COMT and VDR Bsm/Taq, the MTR and MTRR composite status is also important. Mutations in MTR can increase the activity of this gene product so that it leads to a greater need for B12 as the enzyme is using up B12 at a faster rate. The MTRR helps to recycle B12 for use by the MTR. Mutations that affect its activity would also suggest a greater need for B12.
