Biogenesis Methyl Factors
Methylation= the process which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule; it can change the activity of the DNA segment without changing the sequence, it acts to repress gene transcription.
Homocysteine= a non-protein, a-amino acid which differs from the methylene bridge. It is biosynthesized from methionine by the removal of its methyl group.
A deficiency in Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and Folic Acid can lead to low methylation activity, which in turn leads to high levels of homocysteine.
