Functional variant in methionine synthase reductase intron-1 significantly increases the risk of congenital heart disease in the han chinese population.
Summary of "Functional variant in methionine synthase reductase intron-1 significantly increases the risk of congenital heart disease in the han chinese population."
Homocysteine is known to be an independent risk factor for congenital heart disease (CHD). Methionine synthase reductase (MTRR) is essential for the adequate remethylation of homocysteine, which is the dominant pathway for homocysteine removal during early embryonic development.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A stable synthetic analog of methionine enkephalin (ENKEPHALIN, METHIONINE). Actions are similar to those of methionine enkephalin. Its effects can be reversed by narcotic antagonists such as naloxone.
Sulfite Reductase (ferredoxin)
A FERREDOXIN-dependent oxidoreductase that is primarily found in PLANTS where it plays an important role in the assimilation of SULFUR atoms for the production of CYSTEINE and METHIONINE.
Methionine Sulfoxide Reductases
Reductases that catalyze the reaction of peptide-L-methionine -S-oxide + thioredoxin to produce peptide-L-methionine + thioredoxin disulfide + H(2)O.
An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of S-adenosylmethionine from methionine and ATP. EC 220.127.116.11.
An enzyme that activates methionine with its specific transfer RNA. EC 18.104.22.168.
Methionine synthase reductase (MTRR) gene is involved in tumorigenesis by regulating DNA methylation through activation of methionine synthase (MTR). MTRR is polymorphic at nucleotide 66 (A-to-G) and...
Methionine synthase (MTR) and methionine synthase reductase (MTRR) genes have been considered to be implicated in the development of neural tube defects (NTDs). However, the results are inconsistent....
Derivatives of folic acid are involved in transfer of one-carbon units in cellular metabolism, playing a role in synthesis of purines and thymidylate and in the remethylation of homocysteine to form m...
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading causes of death in the developed countries. Elevated homocysteine level is as an independent risk factor of CVDs. The C677T and A1298C variants of methyl...
Human methionine synthase reductase (MSR), a diflavin oxidoreductase, plays a vital role in methionine and folate metabolism by sustaining methionine synthase (MS) activity. MSR catalyzes the oxidatio...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine basal and postmethionine plasma homocysteine in patients with premature vascular disease, cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) or methylenetitrahydrofolate reductase...
The purpose of this study is to determine if limiting dietary methionine (MET), one of the 10 essential amino acids (which make up proteins), causes weight loss and/or improves glucose met...
This is a randomized, double-blind, multicenter trial testing 2 doses of PEG-Intron, 1.0mcg/kg/week and 3.0mcg/kg/week in heavily treatment-experienced HIV-infected patients compared to pl...
Extensive research has established the importance of intracellular methionine metabolism in the transfer of one-carbon units, the regulation of DNA metabolism, all methylation reactions, a...
The purpose of this study is to see if PEG-Intron is safe and tolerated when given to children, to see how much gets into the blood and how long it stays in the blood, and to see how well...
