sarcosine

 [sahr´ko-sēn]
an amino acid occurring as an intermediate in the metabolism of choline in the kidney and liver; it is normally not detectable in human blood or urine.

sar·co·sine (Sar),

(sar'kō-sēn),
N-Methylglycine; an intermediate in the metabolism of choline; it can donate a methyl group to tetrahydrofolate, yielding N5,N10-methylenetetrahydrofolate; demethylation by sarcosine dehydrogenase yields formaldehyde, glycine, and a reduced acceptor; elevated in certain inherited disorders.
