Biochem/physiol Actions

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.

We reported previously that maternal betaine promotes hepatic insulin-like growth factor (IGF2) expression in F1 offspring rats through hypermethylation of the IGF2/H19 imprinting control region (ICR). It remains unknown whether this acquired trait can be transmitted to the F2 generation.

Excessive exposure of glucocorticoids activates adipose lipolysis, increases circulating free fatty acids, and contributes to ectopic lipid deposition in liver and skeletal muscle. Our previous study demonstrated that maternal betaine supplementation attenuates glucocorticoid-induced hepatic lipid accumulation in rat offspring. However

Betaine serves as a methyl donor for DNA methylation. Here, the effects of betaine on hippocampal expression of neurogenesis genes and their DNA methylation status across three generations are investigated. Pregnant rats (F0) are fed control and betaine-supplemented diets throughout
