which vit. could do this?




  #2

vitamin B12


  #3

smiling face and...THF and B6
i don't see the relationship with B6 sad


  #4

homocystinuria is becos of 2 enz deficiency
1. homocysyeine methyl transferase which require B 12 and THF as cofactor
2. cystathionine synthase which require B 6 as the cofactor
so B6, B 12 and folate deficiency also cause mild homocytinuria


  #5

cystathionine synthase converts homocysteine to cystathionine with B6 as cofactor


  #6
