Understanding Epigenetic Methylation

Methylation in the Human Body Methylation, commonly referred to as the "one-carbon metabolism", is the transfer or formation of methyl (CH3) groups, such as MTHFR, COMT, and DNMT. Methylation frequently utilizes SAMe as a methyl donor. Methylation is fundamental for a variety of bodily structures and functions, including cell division, gene expression, early CNS development, immune cell differentiation, neurotransmitter biosynthesis and/or metabolism, histamine clearance, detoxification, hormone biotransformation, cellular energy metabolism, phospholipid synthesis, and the myelination of peripheral nerves, among other structures and functions. Among one of it's most essential functions on structures, DNA methylation highly regulates a variety of epigenetic marks, making them substantially stable, such as the covalent bonds of X and Y chromosomes in men and women.
