FunctionCatalyzes the conversion of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, a co-substrate for homocysteine remethylation to methionine.
PathwayOne-carbon metabolism; tetrahydrofolate interconversion.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in MTHFR are the cause of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase deficiency (MTHFRD) [MIM:236250]. MTHFRD is autosomal recessive disorder with a wide range of features including homocysteinuria, homocysteinemia [MIM:603174], developmental delay, severe mental retardation, perinatal death, psychiatric disturbances, and later-onset neurodegenerative disorders.
Defects in MTHFR may be a cause of susceptibility to ischemic stroke (ISCHSTR) [MIM:601367]; also known as cerebrovascular accident or cerebral infarction. A stroke is an acute neurologic event leading to death of neural tissue of the brain and resulting in loss of motor, sensory and/or cognitive function. Ischemic strokes, resulting from vascular occlusion, is considered to be a highly complex disease consisting of a group of heterogeneous disorders with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors.
Defects in MTHFR may be a cause of susceptibility to folate-sensitive neural tube defects (folate-sensitive NTD) [MIM:601634]. The most common NTDs are open spina bifida (myelomeningocele) and anencephaly.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase family.
