|Sarcosine dimethylglycine N-methyltransferase.|
|2 S-adenosyl-L-methionine + sarcosine <=> 2 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + betaine|
- Cells of the oxygen-evolving halotolerant cyanobacterium Aphanocthece
halophytica synthesize betaine from glycine by a three-step
- The first enzyme, EC 184.108.40.206, leads to the formation of either
sarcosine or N,N-dimethylglycine, which is further methylated to
yield betaine (N,N,N-trimethylglycine) by the action of this enzyme.
- Both of these enzymes can catalyze the formation of
N,N-dimethylglycine from sarcosine.
- The reactions are strongly inhibited by S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine.
