Accepted name: sarcosine dehydrogenase
Reaction: sarcosine + 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate + oxidized [electron-transfer flavoprotein] = glycine + 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate + reduced [electron-transfer flavoprotein]
Other name(s): sarcosine N-demethylase; monomethylglycine dehydrogenase; sarcosine:(acceptor) oxidoreductase (demethylating); sarcosine:electron-transfer flavoprotein oxidoreductase (demethylating)
Systematic name: sarcosine, 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate:electron-transferflavoprotein oxidoreductase (demethylating,5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate-forming)
Comments: A flavoprotein (FMN) found in eukaryotes. In the absence of tetrahydrofolate the enzyme produces formaldehyde. cf. EC, sarcosine oxidase (formaldehyde-forming), and EC, sarcosine oxidase (5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate-forming).
