Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is an enzyme (EC, that reduces 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, a carbon donor for the homocysteine to methionine conversion. MTHFR is a keyenzyme that regulates folate metabolism which has an important role in DNA synthesis, DNA repair and methylation.
