GNMT Catalyzes the methylation of glycine by using S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet) to form N-methylglycine (sarcosine) with the concomitant production of S-adenosylhomocysteine (AdoHcy). Possible crucial role in the regulation of tissue concentration of AdoMet and of metabolism of methionine. Belongs to the class I-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. Glycine N-methyltransferase family. Abundant in liver. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
