|Choline + 2 O(2) + H(2)O <=> betaine + 2 H(2)O(2)|
- In many bacteria, plants and animals, the osmoprotectant betaine is
synthesized using different enzymes to catalyze the conversion of (1)
choline into betaine aldehyde and (2) betaine aldehyde into betaine.
- In plants, the first reaction is catalyzed by EC 22.214.171.124, whereas
in animals and many bacteria, it is catalyzed by either EC 126.96.36.199
or EC 188.8.131.52.
- The enzyme involved in the second step, EC 184.108.40.206, appears to be the
same in those plants, animals and bacteria that use two separate
