CAS 107-43-7,Betaine
  • Description

Betaine is used to treat homocystinuria.
Target: Others
Betaine exerts its isostabilizing effect without appreciably altering the conformation of double-stranded DNA from the B form. The presence of > 5 M betaine also does not greatly change the behavior of DNA as a polyelectrolyte; this lack of effect on electrostatic interactions is expected because betaine exists as a zwitterion near neutral pH [1]. Betaine improves the co-amplification of the two alternatively spliced variants of the prostate-specific membrane antigen mRNA as well as the amplification of the coding cDNA region of c-jun. It is suggested that betaine improves the amplification of these genes by reducing the formation of secondary structure caused by GC-rich regions and, therefore, may be generally applicable to ameliorate the amplification of GC-rich DNA sequences [2].
