AccessionGenProp0267
Nameosmolyte biosynthesis
TypeCATEGORY
DescriptionCells can resist dessication, high salt, and other osmotic stresses by modulating levels of osmolytes, compatible solutes that can exists in high concentrations without damaging cells. Some osmolytes may have secondary functions for carbon and energy storage molecules or for further biosynthetic reactions. Widely distributed compatible solutes induced by osmotic stress include trehalose, glucosylglycerol, sucrose, mannitol, glycine betaine and other betaines, ectoine and hydroxyectoine, glutamate, N-acetylglutaminylglutamine amide, etc.
