Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E
Homocysteine a sulfur containing amino acid, is formed by the transmethylation of methionine, an essential amino acid. Homocysteine may be irreversibly metabolised to cystathionine by cystathionine synthetase. This reaction uses pyridoxal phosphate (Vitamin B6) as a co-enzyme (see figure). The enzyme cystathionine synthetase is deficient in homocysteinuria, a rare genetic disease associated with high blood levels of homocysteine and the development of premature atherosclerosis. This and the association of other rare enzyme deficiencies with homocysteinemia and premature atherosclerosis led McCully to formulate the homocysteine hypothesis of atherosclerosis (McCully KS, The homocysteine theory of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis. 1976; 20: 23-27)
