|Background||BHMT2 is involved in the regulation of homocysteine metabolism. 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. BHMT2 is one of two methyl transferases that can catalyze the transfer of the methyl group from betaine to homocysteine. Recombinant human BHMT2 protein, fused to His-tag at N-terminus, was expressed in E.coli.|
