|Full Name||betaine--homocysteine S-methyltransferase 2|
|Product Description||Rabbit Polyclonal antibody to BHMT2 (betaine-homocysteine methyltransferase 2)|
|Background||Homocysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that plays a crucial role in methylation reactions. Transfer of the methyl group from betaine to homocysteine creates methionine, which donates the methyl group to methylate DNA, proteins, lipids, and other intracellular metabolites. The protein encoded by this gene is one of two methyl transferases that can catalyze the transfer of the methyl group from betaine to homocysteine. Anomalies in homocysteine metabolism have been implicated in disorders ranging from vascular disease to neural tube birth defects such as spina bifida. [provided by RefSeq]|
