General Function:
Glycine amidinotransferase activity
Specific Function:
Catalyzes the biosynthesis of guanidinoacetate, the immediate precursor of creatine. Creatine plays a vital role in energy metabolism in muscle tissues. May play a role in embryonic and central nervous system development. May be involved in the response to heart failure by elevating local creatine synthesis.

General Function:
Not Available
Specific Function:
Kills a number of Gram-positive bacteria. Acts at the level of cell wall biosynthesis by interfering with bacterial peptidoglycan biosynthesis. Specifically inhibits the conversion of the lipid II intermediate into polymeric nascent glycan strands by transglycosylation. May interact with the peptidoglycan precursor rather than with the enzyme.
