Does the MTHFR A1298C Polymorphism Modulate the Cardiorespiratory Response to Training?

, involved in DNA methylation, the process of covalent addition of a methyl group to cytosine within the context of the CpG dinucleotide ( Terruzzi et al., 2011 ). A large body of evidence has demonstrated that the methylation of the DNA is associated with the regulation of gene expression and it has been found to be involved in inhibition of gene expression ( Klose and Bird, 2006 ). Several polymorphic sites have been described within MTHFR, however, two of them i.e., C677T and A1298C, commonly occur and are most thoroughly explored. The C677T polymorphism has been
