Özet

Background and Aims. An association of homozygous MTHFR 677T genotypes with elevated plasma homocysteine level has been documented, but results are still controversial. We aimed to investigate prevalence of the C677T polymorphism in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) in the Eastern Black Sea region of Turkey.
