Target

  • Function
    Involved in the regulation of homocysteine metabolism. Converts betaine and homocysteine to dimethylglycine and methionine, respectively. This reaction is also required for the irreversible oxidation of choline.
  • Tissue specificity
    Found exclusively in liver and kidney.
  • Pathway
    Amine and polyamine degradation; betaine degradation; sarcosine from betaine: step 1/2.
    Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-methionine biosynthesis via de novo pathway; L-methionine from L-homocysteine (BhmT route): step 1/1.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 Hcy-binding domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm.
