Because SAH is a potent inhibitor of many transmethylases, the lower ratio of SAM:SAH in the CSF indicates a hypomethylation state in the brain and may affect several important biological pathways.
Furthermore, the affinity of MBD binding to bacterial DNA, normally methylated at adenine and cytosine residues through Dam and Dcm transmethylases (14), is untested.
