HKG EpiTherapeutics MetaGen Mutations Panel
HKG EpiTherapeutics has launched its MetaGen Mutations Panel, a genetic methylation test that evaluates specific genes to offer insights into customers' genetic profiles and their effects on health and aging. The assay is performed on a saliva sample and evaluates specific single SNPs in the AHCY, COMT, MTHFR, MTR, and MTRR genes, which play a key role in the body's methylation processes. These processes influence a wide array of biological functions including DNA methylation and repair, detoxification, and neurotransmitter synthesis, the company said. Consumers who order the panel will receive a bundle that also includes HKG's epiAge test, a biological age test that uses a saliva testing kit to determine "actual body age" based on DNA methylation; as well as HKG's epiSmoke test to assess smoke exposure effects.
