This sulphur containing amino acid is the source of homocysteine (Hcy). It is converted to S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), the major methyl-group donor in one–carbon metabolism.

It is important for the stability of intermolecular crosslinks in basement membranes. These data support our idea that the two populations of ONH astrocytes respond differently to elevated hydrostatic pressure with respect to changes in gene expression. Some responses may be due to intrinsically lower expression in the AA astrocyte population that is enhanced by elevated HP, while others appear to be specifically up-regulated in these cells. , 2009). The strategy here was to determine whether changes in gene expression can be correlated with changes in protein phosphorylation in ONH astrocytes subjected to elevated HP.
