Sysname
S-adenosyl-L-methionine:8-hydroxyfurocoumarin 8-O-methyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
(1) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + an 8-hydroxyfurocoumarin = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + an 8-methoxyfurocoumarin (general reaction) [RN:R02982];
(2) S-adenosyl-L-methionine + xanthotoxol = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + xanthotoxin
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
S-adenosyl-L-methionine [CPD:C00019];
8-hydroxyfurocoumarin;
xanthotoxol [CPD:C00841]
Product
S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine [CPD:C00021];
8-methoxyfurocoumarin;
xanthotoxin [CPD:C01864]
Comment
Converts xanthotoxol into xanthotoxin, which has therapeutic potential in the treatment of psoriasis as it has photosensitizing and antiproliferative activities [4]. Methylates the 8-hydroxy group of some hydroxy- and methylcoumarins, but has little activity on non-coumarin phenols (see also EC 2.1.1.69, 5-hydroxyfuranocoumarin 5-O-methyltransferase).
