Abstract:The electrophoretic mobility (45 kDa) and the nucleotide sequence of the human kidney BHMT has been shown to be identical to liver BHMT. Initial rate data was plotted according to the method of Hanes and the Michaelis Constants were estimated to be 2160 muM and <10 muM for betaine and L-Homocysteine, respectively. These constants were same as the published human liver BHMT constants. Thus, we conclude that kidney and liver BHMT proteins are the product of one human BHMT gene.
