Technical Data
Betaine-homocysteine S-methyltransferase, CT (BHMT)
Betaine homocysteine methyltransferase (BHMT), a cytosolic enzyme, and its partial fragments were discovered as autolysosomal membrane proteins from rat liver in the presence of leupeptin. BHMT was also found in human liver. BHMT transfers a methyl group from betaine to homocysteine to form DMG (dimethylglycine) and Met. In vivo, liver BHMT expression is influenced by dietary changes in sulfur aa, choline and betaine.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, ELISA and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
