Transferring one-carbon groups;
Methyltransferases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:anthranilate O-methyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + anthranilate = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + O-methyl anthranilate [RN:R10451]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
S-adenosyl-L-methionine [CPD:C00019];
anthranilate [CPD:C00108]
Product
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine [CPD:C00021];
O-methyl anthranilate [CPD:C20634]
Comment
In the plant maize (Zea mays), the isoforms AAMT1 and AAMT2 are specific for anthranilate while AAMT3 also has the activity of EC 2.1.1.273, benzoate methyltransferase.
History
