Phenylethanolamine N-Methyltransferase

Name: Phenylethanolamine N-Methyltransferase
Description: It is a protein that is a translation product of the PNMT gene or a 1:1 ortholog thereof. This methyltransferase catalyzes the reaction of S-adenosyl-L-methionine and phenylethanolamine to yield S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine and N-methylphenylethanolamine. It can act on various phenylethanolamines and converts norepinephrine into epinephrine. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992) EC 2.1.1.28. (adapted from MSH).
