Enzyme Commission Primary Name: betaine-aldehyde dehydrogenase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: betaine aldehyde oxidase, BADH, betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase, BetB
This is the second reaction in the betaine biosynthetic pathway.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
In many bacteria, plants and animals, the osmoprotectant betaine is synthesized in two steps: (1) choline to betaine aldehyde and (2) betaine aldehyde to betaine. This enzyme is involved in the second step and appears to be the same in plants, animals and bacteria. In contrast, different enzymes are involved in the first reaction. In plants, this reaction is catalysed by EC 22.214.171.124 (choline monooxygenase), whereas in animals and many bacteria, it is catalysed by either membrane-bound EC 126.96.36.199 (choline dehydrogenase) or soluble EC 188.8.131.52 (choline oxidase) . In some bacteria, betaine is synthesized from glycine through the actions of EC 184.108.40.206 (glycine/sarcosine N-methyltransferase) and EC 220.127.116.11 (sarcosine/dimethylglycine N-methyltransferase).
