  • FunctionInvolved 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 specificityFound exclusively in liver and kidney.
  • PathwayAmine 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 similaritiesContains 1 Hcy-binding domain.
