MTHFR Gene Mutation Symptoms and Treatment

Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase is a gene that makes a protein (enzyme). The function of the enzyme activity is associated with the processing of amino acids (such as plasma homocysteine) that are the building blocks of proteins. So, let’s get into that a bit more. Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is one of the many enzymes that our body […]

ATM Gene Mutation and the Risk of Cancer

Ataxia telangiectasia (ATM) is a rare inherited disorder that affects the immune system and the nervous system, among others. It is a protein that is part of a specific protein kinase family, namely phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase enzymes. Put simply, these enzymes are like an army of soldiers that are involved in several regulatory processes within the […]
