ENZYME entry: EC 1.2.1.8

Accepted Name
Betaine-aldehyde dehydrogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
BADH.
Betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase.
Betaine aldehyde oxidase.
Reaction catalysed
Betaine aldehyde + NAD(+) + H(2)O <=> betaine + NADH
Comment(s)
  • 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 catalyzed by EC 1.14.15.7, whereas in animals and many bacteria, it is catalyzed by either membrane-bound EC 1.1.99.1 or soluble EC 1.1.3.17.
  • In some bacteria, betaine is synthesized from glycine through the actions of EC 2.1.1.156 and EC 2.1.1.157.
