Trust us to deliver supply chain transparency and reliable sourcing around the globe, streamlining your product qualification with best-in-class regulatory support and service.

Application

Betaine has been used in reverse transcription to increase the thermal stability of proteins and to destabilize the DNA helix.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Betaine has been shown to increase S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) levels and hence, may have a role in diminishing hepatic steatosis. It is an osmolyte which protects cells against environmental stress.
End-product of oxidative metabolism of choline, betaine is a general methyl donor, in particular in a minor pathway of methionine biosynthesis. It is used to treat homocystinuria, which is a defect in the major pathway of methionine biosynthesis.
