 Facts and Details

More Details

The Genate Test was developed from extensive academic research and clinical studies. It stands alone as the only prenatal genetic screening test to provide a comprehensive analysis of the key nutrient pathways in pregnancy. With your results, our registered dietitians can provide personalized nutrition recommendations to fit your genetics.

The Genate Test evaluates over 325 genetic markers, addressing the following genetic variants and metabolic pathways important for fetal development:

  • PEMT, CHK, and SLC44A1: Phosphatidylcholine and choline synthesis
  • MTHFR and MTHFD1: Metabolism of folate, choline, and B vitamins
  • MTR and BHMT: DNA methylation
  • CHDH: Choline and betaine metabolism
  • PNPLA3, APOC3, FADS2, and SCD: Fatty acid metabolism

One-carbon metabolism is the primary focus of the Genate Test due to its role in neural tube, brain, and nervous system development, DNA methylation, homocysteine metabolism, and postpartum recovery. The test also evaluates genetic variants in the metabolic pathways of nine other vitamins and minerals critical during pregnancy.

Each client's Genate Report provides information on their gene variants and how they impact metabolism of the following nutrients: choline, folate, DHA, betaine, vitamin A, B6, B12, C, D, K, riboflavin, calcium, iron, and magnesium.

This test does not provide medical advice or diagnose any medical conditions. Consult with a healthcare provider if you have any concerns regarding your results.

Your genetic data will be processed via the Genate Test algorithm, and you will receive a report regarding your metabolic inefficiencies that can cause depletions in important nutrients. The report will be shared with you via a secure, password-protected portal. This access will not be shared with anyone, including employees of SNP Therapeutics, healthcare providers, insurance companies, or law enforcement agents without your consent or the demand of a court order.

The Science Behind Nutrient Metabolism

Genes regulate your body's nutrient pathways. Genetic misspellings (called SNPs) can affect those pathways and the nutrition you share with your baby during pregnancy.

Without genetic guidance, the path to optimal prenatal nutrition remains a complex puzzle.


Nutrient Metabolism Is Largely Influenced by Genetics

SNPs are variants that can change the way a gene functions (plural, pronounced Snips)

Genes regulating nutrient metabolism may have SNPs that can lead to reduced nutrient metabolic flow

One carbon nutrients and fatty acids are particularly important during pregnancy

These nutrients are critical building blocks for supporting healthy fetal development

Knowing if you have SNPs in these pathways can help you personalize your nutritional needs during pregnancy
