Methylation involves adding a methyl (CH3) group to DNA.  Demethylation involves removal of a methyl group.  This can affect the function of genes and gene expression, which in turn affects a great many processes in physiology. 

Methylation has become a major target of investigation and clinical interest.  The MTHFR gene is perhaps the best-known example of a gene influenced by methylation.  Issues associated with variants of the MTHFR gene include ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune disorders, depression, etc.  The subject of methylation is much deeper and broader than that.

The METHYLATION SUMMIT will empower physicians with the information needed to understand methylation and implement proper treatment in clinical practice.
