Summaries for INMT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for INMT Gene

  • N-methylation of endogenous and xenobiotic compounds is a major method by which they are degraded. This gene encodes an enzyme that N-methylates indoles such as tryptamine. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Read-through transcription also exists between this gene and the downstream FAM188B (family with sequence similarity 188, member B) gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for INMT Gene

INMT (Indolethylamine N-Methyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Tryptophan metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include methyltransferase activity and amine N-methyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NNMT.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for INMT Gene

  • Functions as thioether S-methyltransferase and is active with a variety of thioethers and the corresponding selenium and tellurium compounds, including 3-methylthiopropionaldehyde, dimethyl selenide, dimethyl telluride, 2-methylthioethylamine, 2-methylthioethanol, methyl-n-propyl sulfide and diethyl sulfide. Plays an important role in the detoxification of selenium compounds (By similarity). Catalyzes the N-methylation of tryptamine and structurally related compounds.
