Genetic screening for 5,10-Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase (MTHFR) mutations MTHFR 677C>T and MTHFR 1298A>C. MTHFR 677C>T homozygosity predisposes to arterial and venous thrombosis in the presence of additional risk factors; the thermolabile variant (T allele) is associated with reduced enzyme activity and elevated plasma homocysteine levels in conjunction with folate deficiency. Furthermore, compound heterozygosity for 677C>T and 1298A>C is associated with reduced MTHFR enzyme activity.
