COVID-19 and homocysteine

COVID-19 and homocysteine

Posted: September 03 2020 in COVID-19

Homocysteine Homocysteine (Hcy) is a type of amino acid, the building blocks that are used to build proteins. Homocysteine is produced by a process called demethylation (removal of a methyl group (CH3) from a molecule) of the amino acid methionine.  Methionine is one of the 11 essential amino acids which means our body can´t produce it and we have to get it from our diet, especially from animal protein sources(4). When a methyl group is added to a methionine molecule, we have the production of homocysteine. For this reaction to occur, we need the help of another type of protein, an enzyme named methionine synthase(4). Three other components also have an important role in this process: vitamins B6, B12, and...
