ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.325

Accepted Name
Juvenile hormone-III synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Farnesoic acid methyltransferase.
Juvenile hormone acid methyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + (2E,6E)-farnesoate <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + methyl (2E,6E)-farnesoate
  • S-adenosyl-L-methionine + juvenile hormone III acid <=> S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + juvenile hormone III
Comment(s)
The enzyme, found in insects, is involved in the synthesis of juvenile hormone III, a sesquiterpenoid that regulates several processes including embryonic development, metamorphosis, and reproduction, in many insect species.
