ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.162

Accepted Name
glycine/sarcosine/dimethylglycine N-methyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
glycine sarcosine dimethylglycine N-methyltransferase.
GSDMT.
Reaction catalysed
glycine + 3 S-adenosyl-L-methionine <=> glycine betaine + 3 H(+) + 3 S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
Comment(s)
Unlike EC 2.1.1.156, EC 2.1.1.157 and EC 2.1.1.161, this enzyme, from the halophilic methanoarchaeon Methanohalophilus portucalensis, can methylate glycine and all of its intermediates to form the compatible solute betaine.
