General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
Choline dehydrogenase
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
Donor organism
Donor organism
Escherichia coli - ECOLX
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Oxygen-dependent choline dehydrogenase
Biological function
The protein is involved in the biosynthesis of glycine betaine by oxidizing choline to betaine aldehyde and betaine aldehyde to glycine betaine. Glycine betaine maintains cell water potential by osmotic adjustment. Plant transformed with the choline dehydrogenase gene had increased salt tolerance.
