Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Oxygen-dependent choline dehydrogenase
EN
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.
