MTHFA Gene Mutation

I have ET (MPL) I also have MTHFA which I gather is unrelated to ET, I wonder if it is unrelated, has anyone else got MTHFA mutation. MTHFA is the process of methylation also involves the enzyme from the MTHFR gene, so those with a mutation may have trouble effectively eliminating toxins from the body. The genetics home reference offers more detail: The MTHFR gene provides instructions for making an enzyme called methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase.

I haven’t been tested but my brother has a MTHFR mutation. My understanding is that half the population has it so I’m not sure whether it has much significance in MPNs.
