Serum Folic Acid Status, Genotyping MTHFR 677C-->T, Plasma Homocysteine, DNA Methylation of IGF2 Gene and Microbiota of the Children: Mother-Children Cohort Study

2019-09-25 06:13:32 | BioPortfolio


This study is part of the East Jakarta Cohort Study to assess the current micronutrient status of the mothers and their children. The study also includes the assessment of genotyping of MTHFR 677C-->T of the mother and DNA methylation of IGF2 gene of the children.


The initial study recruited 315 mothers in the public health center and one district hospital in East Jakarta. The follow-up study is able to re-visit the 127 of them. The design of the study is case-cohort design, part study of the existing cohort. The assessment of the follow-up study include the mother and the children born in the initial study. Anthropometric measurement, socioeconomic data from a structured questionnaire, biomarker assessment were obtained from the subjects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of FOLIC ACID in the diet. Many plant and animal tissues contain folic acid, abundant in green leafy vegetables, yeast, liver, and mushrooms but destroyed by long-term cooking. Alcohol interferes with its intermediate metabolism and absorption. Folic acid deficiency may develop in long-term anticonvulsant therapy or with use of oral contraceptives. This deficiency causes anemia, macrocytic anemia, and megaloblastic anemia. It is indistinguishable from vitamin B 12 deficiency in peripheral blood and bone marrow findings, but the neurologic lesions seen in B 12 deficiency do not occur. (Merck Manual, 16th ed)

The active metabolite of FOLIC ACID. Leucovorin is used principally as its calcium salt as an antidote to folic acid antagonists which block the conversion of folic acid to folinic acid.

Red blood cell precursors, corresponding to ERYTHROBLASTS, that are larger than normal, usually resulting from a FOLIC ACID DEFICIENCY or VITAMIN B 12 DEFICIENCY.

Cell surface receptors that bind to and transport FOLIC ACID, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, and a variety of folic acid derivatives. The receptors are essential for normal NEURAL TUBE development and transport folic acid via receptor-mediated endocytosis.

Measurement of this acid in the urine after oral administration of histidine provides the basis for the diagnostic test of folic acid deficiency and of megaloblastic anemia of pregnancy.
