A gene plays an important role in carrying genetic information in most of the living cells. It is basically, found in the nucleus of the cells and together forms the chromosomes. A gene also helps to understand the genetic history and the cause of a disease which eventually, provides the best idea for treatment to cure them.
What is a gene?
A gene is the functional and physical unit of heredity. It is made up of DNA, which acts as an instructor to make molecules called as proteins. A gene may vary in size from a few hundred DNA bases to more than 2 million of bases in it. Every person has a unique identity that could be identified from the DNA analysis. Each living person has two copies of each gene, one inherited from their each parent. Most genes are the same in all of the peoples, but a small number of genes are slightly different between the peoples. These small differences contribute to unique physical features of each person.
DNA Methylation is a process of adding methyl groups to the DNA molecule. The process of methylation can change the activity of a DNA segment without changing its sequence. This process includes installation of a chemical methyl group with the help of enzymes. Methylation process undergoes various operations one of which is regulation of expression of genes that eventually helps in regulating the protein function.
Many such processes in our body are governed by enzymes, which are very much dependent upon the vitamin B for its proper functioning. Vitamin B metabolism is considered to be very effective and it’s deficiency, could cause various health-related problems. A complete analysis of the methylation process helps to understand the vitamin B deficiency and could be managed accordingly for balancing the protein function, by a proper nutritional diet.
We at genetic healing, analyze this process of methylation by genes and provide the correct supplement to fulfill your nutritional requirement which will help you feel the change inside-out.
