BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:4'-hydroxyisoflavone 4'-O-methyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
S-adenosyl-L-methionine + a 4'-hydroxyisoflavone = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + a 4'-methoxyisoflavone
Substrate
S-adenosyl-L-methionine [CPD:C00019];
4'-hydroxyisoflavone
Product
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine [CPD:C00021];
4'-methoxyisoflavone
Comment
Requires Mg2+ for activity. The enzyme catalyses the methylation of daidzein and genistein. It does not methylate naringenin, apigenin, luteolin or kaempferol.
History
EC 2.1.1.46 created 1976, modified 2011
