βine monohydrate has been used to study nitrogen balance and nutrient digestibility in piglets fed diets deficient in methionine and low in compatible osmolytes. βine monohydrate has also been used to compare the effects of pressure on three layered hydrates.
End-product of oxidative metabolism of choline, betaine is a general methyl donor, in particular in a minor pathway of methionine biosynthesis. It is used to treat homocystinuria, which is a defect in the major pathway of methionine biosynthesis.1
