Influ- ence of the phenyl moiety on the Author: Shahin Asadi. In enzymology, a loganate O-methyltransferase (EC ) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction. S-adenosyl-L-methionine + loganic acid ⇌ S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + loganin. Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are S-adenosyl methionine and loganic acid (also called loganate), whereas its two products are S-adenosylhomocysteine and loganin. BRENDA: BRENDA entry.

    Structure and Gene Location. N-Acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase is an enzyme that is coded for by genes located on the pseudoautosomal region of the X and Y chromosome, and is most abundantly found in the pineal gland and retina of humans. [4] Although the exact structure of N- Acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase has yet to be determined by X-Ray diffraction, the crystal . I'm reading a booklet on melatonin published in , titled "Melatonin and the Biological Clock". And see the following statement: HIOMT (HydroxyIndole-O-MethylTransferase), one of enzymes of melatonin synthesis, rises and falls in an annual rhythm, with troughs in March and October and peaks in January and July.

    Melatonin is synthesized from serotonin intermediate in the pineal gland and the retina where the enzyme 5-hydroxyindole-O-methyltransferase, that catalyzes the last step of synthesis, is found. This hormone binds to and activates melatonin receptors and is involved in regulating the sleep and wake cycles. Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT; EC ) is one of several enzymes that degrade catecholamines (such as dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine), catecholestrogens, and various drugs and substances having a catechol humans, catechol-O-methyltransferase protein is encoded by the COMT isoforms of COMT are Aliases: COMT, HEL-Sn, catechol .

Introduction. Melatonin (N-acetylmethoxy-tryptamine, MLT) is a methoxyindole endowed with a variety of biological activities in almost all living organisms (Tan et al., ; Macchi and Bruce, ; Reiter et al., ).In most vertebrates, MLT is an endogenous molecule, rhythmically synthesized and released at nighttime by the pineal gland, a neuroendocrine pacemaker that Author: Laura Betti, Lionella Palego, Gian Carlo Demontis, Fabiana Miraglia, Gino Giannaccini.

DNA methylation, a key component of genetic regulation, occurs primarily at the 5-carbon of the base cytosine, forming 5’methylcytosine (see left). Methylation is an epigenetic modification catalyzed by DNA methyltransferase enzymes, including DNMT1, DNMT2, and enzymes use S-adenosylmethionine as a methyl donor and contain several highly conserved.

Caffeoyl-coenzyme A 3- O -methyltransferase (CCoAOMT) is an S -adenosyl methionine ([SAM][1])-dependent O -methyltransferase responsible for methylation of the meta -hydroxyl group of caffeoyl-coenzyme A (CoA) on the pathway to monolignols, with their ring methoxylation status characteristic of guaiacyl or syringyl units in lignin.
