N,N-Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a natural N-methylated glycine that is used in comparative analysis with other N-methylated glycines such as sarcosine and βine. Used in the development of glycine-based ionic liquids and emulsifiers. Also it is potentially useful as a biomarker of protein degradation in COPD patients. DMG is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize amino acid methyltransferase(s).
