Gene: MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MTHFR
Name: methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase
Description: Exhibits flavin adenine dinucleotide binding activity; methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (NAD(P)H) activity; and modified amino acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including heterochromatin maintenance; sulfur amino acid metabolic process; and tetrahydrofolate interconversion. Predicted to localize to the cytosol. Implicated in several diseases, including carcinoma (multiple); cardiovascular system disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); and kidney failure (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (NADPH); methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (NAD(P)H)
