What is the significance of Methylation Panel?
In biological terms, methylation involves installing a chemical group, called methyl group, onto an existing molecule with the help of enzymes. Methylation is involved in a variety of different biological processes, one of which is regulation of expression of genes and regulation of protein function.
Many methylation processes in our body are governed by enzymes, which are heavily dependent upon the B vitamins. Even the slightest of problem with the metabolism of vitamin B can create different health problems. The thorough analysis of genes, which function in methylation processes, helps us to understand the type of deficiency. Accordingly, the correct supplement of that particular B vitamin can be given to the individual to fulfil the nutritional requirement.
