ABOUT THIS TEST

 

Homocysteine is a non-essential amino acid produced from the intracellular de-methylation of dietary methionine. There are two major pathways for its further metabolism - trans-sulphuration to cysteine (by a vitamin B6-dependent pathway) or re-methylation to methionine (by a vitamin B12 and folic acid-dependent pathway). Vitamin B2 is also required for homocysteine metabolism on account of its role in the re-cycling and maintenance of folic acid levels. Excess homocysteine accumulates in the plasma when these pathways are not operating at optimum activity.
