- ... Betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase (BADH) is a key enzyme involved in the synthesis of glycinebetaine—a powerful osmoprotectant against salt and drought stress in a large number of species. Rice is not known to accumulate glycinebetaine but it has two functional genes coding for the BADH enzyme. A non-functional allele of the BADH2 gene located on chromosome 8 is a major factor associated with rice ar ...
