Figure 1. From: A Genomewide Exploration Suggests a New Candidate Gene at Chromosome 11q23 as the Major Determinant of Plasma Homocysteine Levels: Results from the GAIT Project.

Linkage results from the autosomal multipoint genome scan. LOD score scales are shown for chromosomes 1, 3, 4, 10, and 11—the only chromosomes on which the maximum LOD score was >1. Hatch marks along the length of the chromosomes indicate the positions of the DNA markers.

Metabolic pathways involved in Hcy regulation. Enzymes are numbered as follows: (1) methionine adenosyltransferase, (2) SAH hydrolase, (3) betaine-homocysteine methyltransferase, (4) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate-homocysteine methyltransferase, (5) cystathionine β-synthase, (6) cystathionine γ-lyase, (7) serine hydroxymethyltransferase, and (8) 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. B6 = vitamin B6; B12 = vitamin B12; CH3 = methyl group; DMG = dimethylglycine; THF = tetrahydrofolate. NNMT is one of at least 39 SAM-dependent methyltransferases described in mammals (Clarke and Banfield 2001). The gene encoding NNMT is located on chromosome 11q23, at the same QTL that has been linked to plasma Hcy levels.
