165: How important are MAT1A SNPs to methylation?
Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 165
Question: How important are MAT1A SNPs to methylation?
These in principle, could reduce the activation of methionine, but I don't know that there are any studies that have looked at whether that's the case. And so, just because a SNP isn't a gene doesn't mean that it reduces the activity of that gene. In fact, it doesn't mean it does anything even to the protein sequence of a gene because a lot of SNPs don't affect the protein sequence.
