GNMT Human Recombinant fused with 20 amino acid His-Tag tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing a total of 315 amino acids (1-295 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 34.9 kDa.The GNMT is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
GNMT is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of S-adenosyl-L-methionine with glycine to S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine and sarcosine. GNMT is located in the cytoplasm and acts as a homotetramer. Defects in the GNMT gene causes of GNMT deficiency (hypermethioninemia). GNMT affects DNA methylation by regulating the ratio of S-adenosylmethionine to S-adenosylhomocystine and is involved in the detoxification pathway in liver cells. GNMT expression is diminished in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). GNMT catalyzes the methylation of glycine by using s- adenosylmethionine (adomet) to form n-methylglycine (sarcosine) with the concomitant production of s-adenosylhomocysteine (adohcy). GNMT plays an essential role in the regulation of tissue concentration of adomet and of metabolism of methionine.
Glycine N-methyltransferase, GNMT.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The GNMT solution contains 20mM Tris pH 8.0 & 20% glycerol.
GNMT althoµgh stable 4°C for 4 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
