ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.1.49

Accepted Name
amine N-methyltransferase
Alternative Name(s)
arylamine N-methyltransferase
nicotine N-methyltransferase
tryptamine N-methyltransferase
Reaction catalysed
  • a primary amine + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = a methylated primary amine + H(+) + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
  • a secondary amine + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = a methylated secondary amine + H(+) + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
  • a tertiary amine + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = a methylated tertiary amine + H(+) + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
Comment(s)
  • An enzyme of very broad specificity; many primary, secondary and tertiary amines can act as acceptors, including tryptamine, aniline, nicotine and a variety of drugs and other xenobiotics.
  • Formerly EC 2.1.1.81.
