Gene information for PNMT (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID5409
Official gene symbolPNMT
Full namephenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase
Gene summaryThe product of this gene catalyzes the last step of the catecholamine biosynthesis pathway, which methylates norepinephrine to form epinephrine (adrenaline). The enzyme also has beta-carboline 2N-methyltransferase activity. This gene is thought to play a key step in regulating epinephrine production. [provided by RefSeq]
