Pearson correlations among hepatic cystathionine β-synthase (CBS), betaine homocysteine methyltransferase (BHMT) and 5-methyltetrahydrofolaare-homocysteine methyltransferase (MTR) activity with concentrations of liver methionine (Met) and liver betaine from 2 studies [28, 64]. In the study first study Vailati-Riboni et al. [28] fed diets with or without RPM at 0.10% DM for 28 d prepartum and 60 d postpartum. In the last study, a 2 × 2 factorial design of body condition score (BCS) and energy level during the periparturient period as used: 2 prepartum BCS categories [4.0 (thin, BCS 4) and 5.0 (optimal, BCS 5); 10-point scale [72]] and 2 levels of energy intake during the 3 weeks. preceding calving (75% or 125% of estimated requirements) obtained via allowance (m2/cow) of fresh pasture composed of mostly perennial ryegrass and white cover [64]. Data in graphs are split between cows receiving Met and those that did not receive Met. Due to the large range and distribution of the metabolomics data variables for liver Met and betaine, they were log transformed. Values reported in the graphs are log values
