The Use And Function Of Betaine
May 02, 2018


  Anti-tumor, lower blood pressure, anti-peptic ulcer and gastrointestinal dysfunction, treatment of liver diseases. As a feed additive with a methyl donor function, some methionine can be saved. It has functions of regulating osmotic pressure in vivo, alleviating stress, promoting fat metabolism and protein synthesis, increasing lean meat, and enhancing the efficacy of anticoccidial drugs. Used as a lure agent in aquatic animal feeds.

The function of betaine

  Maintain cell osmotic pressure: when subjected to saline or water stress, the cytoplasm accumulates a large number of organic osmoregulators such as betaine, while the inorganic osmotic regulator in the cytoplasm mainly helps to squeeze into the vacuole, making cytoplasm and intracellular vacuoles) The external environment maintains an osmotic balance, which avoids the poisoning of enzymes and metabolism by high concentrations of cytoplasmic inorganic ions.

  Protection of the enzyme: Betaine has a high solubility and no static charge. Its high concentration has no effect on many enzymes and other biological macromolecules and even has a protective effect. Betaine has a stabilizing effect on PSH peripheral skin.

  Resistance to Salt Permanence: Betaine can rapidly synthesize and accumulate to a very high concentration in the body. It does not have feedback inhibition in the biosynthetic reaction and produces NAOH. The slow metabolism of betaine suggests that the regulation of betaine metabolism is mainly determined by synthesis.

  Influencing the distribution of inorganic ions: The accumulation of betaine betaine under salt stress in barley has a certain regulatory effect on stomatal movement, respiration and related gene expression under adverse conditions.
