A hypercoaguability work up revealed normal levels of factor V leiden, protein C, proteins S, antithrombin III, and homocystine
Homocysteine is a nonessential, non-protein-forming, thiol-containing amino acid that is readily oxidized in the blood to homocystine
and other disulfides.
For example, adequate nutrients could be measured in terms of improvement in disease markers such as homocystine
(an amino acid believed to increase the risk of heart disease at elevated concentrations), and the prevention of chronic diseases such as osteoporosis (Wallace 2005).
Methylation of guanidoacetic acid by homocystine
plus choline with rat liver slices.
Wilcken and Wilcken In 1976, Shown in the first clinical study supporting the theory that coronary artery disease (CAD) had a correlation with higher levels of homocystine
To detect Hg(II) ion selectively, we modified (20,45) the surface of the gold nanoparticle with mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) and homocystine
(bound to the gold nanoparticle surface through Au-S bond) and we added a chelating ligand 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid (PDCA), to the solution.
Folate, vitamin B12, and homocystine
in major depressive disorder.
The B vitamins, especially folic acid, have been associated with lowering blood levels of homocystine
(an amino acid, which in high levels, is associated with heart disease, stroke, and fractures).
Total plasma homocysteine (Hcys), which was measured by HPLC method, was defined as the sum of all homocysteine species in plasma, including homocysteine, homocystine
, mixed disulfides, and protein-bound forms (8).
Too much homocystine
can lead to psychoses and atherosclerosis.

It also lowers the levels of homocystine
, an amino acid that increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.
