Abstract Purpose Methyltetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T (ala222Val) is a single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) that affects the formation of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), the active folate that allows the recycling of homocysteine (Hcy) to Methionine. Hcy is at the epicentre of oxidative stress and DNA methylation errors. This SNP often increases the circulating Hcy levels and consequently reduces the methylation process, which is involved in the epigenesis and imprinting of markings...
An increasing number of publications indicate that babies born after IVF (in vitro fertilization) procedures have higher rates of anomalies related to imprinting/epigenetic changes, which may be attributed to suboptimal culture conditions. Appropriate maintenance of DNA methylation during the first few days of an in vitro culture requires a supply of methyl donors, which are lacking in current in vitro culture systems. The absence of protection against oxidative stress in the culture increases t...

A 41-year-old Caucasian woman with a history of infertility dating from 2011 was identified as wild-type (no mutations) for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase single nucleotide polymorphisms (MTHFR-SNPs). Previous treatment included three failed in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection cycles as well as one failed cycle of in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection with donated oocytes. Counseling for a further oocyte donation cycle included advice to take high doses...

The sperm plasma membrane is a sensitive target to oxidative stress. The most representative reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavengers in the genital tract, hypotaurine and glutathione, require, for their synthesis, cysteine whose availability is associated with the 1-carbon cycle (1-CC). Human, bovine and ascidian spermatozoa were incubated with compounds supporting the 1-CC (Vitamin B6, Methylcobalamin, 5 Methyl Tetrahydrofolate, Zinc Bisglycinate and N-acetyl-cysteine) (TRT) and compared to th...
Purpose To evaluate the possibility of correcting metabolic defects in gametes and embryos due to methylene tetra hydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) isoforms C677T and A1298C, by supplementation with 5-methyl THF instead of synthetic folic acid. In these couples, high doses of folic acid lead to UMFA (un-metabolized folic acid) syndrome.
