Secondary Information

Protein Function cytosolic NAD1-dependent aldehyde dehydrogenase; converts γ-trimethylaminobutyraldehyde into g-butyrobetaine; trimethyllysine released upon protein degradation is oxidized to γ-butyrobetaine (BB) by the action of trimethyllysine dioxygenase (TMLHE), 3-hydroxy-N-TML aldolase and 4-N-trimethylaminobutyraldehyde dehydrogenase
Significance in milk mRNA abundances of 4-N-trimethylaminobutyraldehyde dehydrogenase is increased in liver biopsy samples of cows in late pregnancy and early lactation
