ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.160

Accepted Name
Caffeine synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
3N-methyltransferase.
Dimethylxanthine methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 3,7-dimethylxanthine <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 1,7-dimethylxanthine <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 7-methylxanthine <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + 3,7-dimethylxanthine
Comment(s)
Paraxanthine is the best substrate for this enzyme but the paraxanthine pathway is considered to be a minor pathway for caffeine biosynthesis.
