BHMT, Betaine Homocysteine S-Methyltransferase 1, BHMT1.
Betaine-homocysteine methyltransferase (BHMT) is a cytosolic enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of betaine and homocysteine to dimethylglycine and methionine, respectively. BHMT displays differential expression in a model of liver cirrhosis.
Betaine Homocysteine S-Methyltransferase Human Recombinant fused to His Tag at N-terminal produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 443 amino acids (21-236) and having a molecular mass of 49.2 kDa.
The BHMT is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered clear colorless solution 1 mg/ml.
The BHMT solution contains 20mM Tris-HCl pH-7.5 and 20% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
