|Other Names||Methionine synthase, 184.108.40.206, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate--homocysteine methyltransferase, Vitamin-B12 dependent methionine synthase, MS, MTR|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-MTR Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from methyl- cobalamin to homocysteine, yielding enzyme-bound cob(I)alamin and methionine. Subsequently, remethylates the cofactor using methyltetrahydrofolate (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Expressed at the highest levels in pancreas, heart, brain, skeletal muscle and placenta Expressed at lower levels in lung, liver and kidney|

MTR encodes the enzyme 5-methyltetrahydrofolate-homocysteine methyltransferase. This enzyme, also known as cobalamin-dependent methionine synthase, catalyzes the final step in methionine biosynthesis. Mutations in MTR have been identified as the underlying cause of methylcobalamin deficiency complementation group G.
