Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits glycine N-methyltransferase activity and glycine binding activity. Involved in several processes, including glycogen metabolic process; protein homotetramerization; and regulation of gluconeogenesis. Predicted to localize to cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including integumental system; limb; nose; pancreas tip epithelium; and skeleton. Used to study glycine N-methyltransferase deficiency and hepatocellular carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycine N-methyltransferase deficiency. Orthologous to human GNMT (glycine N-methyltransferase).
