Summaries for ASMTL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ASMTL Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene has an N-terminus that is similar to the multicopy associated filamentation (maf) protein of Bacillus subtilis and to orfE of Escherichia coli, while the C-terminus is similar to N-acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase. This gene is located in the pseudoautosomal region 1 (PAR1) of X and Y chromosomes. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ASMTL Gene

ASMTL (Acetylserotonin O-Methyltransferase-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ASMTL include patau syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include O-methyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ASMT.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ASMTL Gene

  • Unknown. The presence of the putative catalytic domain of S-adenosyl-L-methionine binding argues for a methyltransferase activity

    • The gene coding for this protein is located in the pseudoautosomal region 1 (PAR1) of X and Y chromosomes. It represents a unique fusion product of 2 different genes of different evolutionary origin and function. The N-terminus is homologous to the bacterial maf/orfE genes and the C-terminus is homologous to ASMT. Exon duplication, exon shuffling and gene fusion seem to be common characteristics of the PAR1 region
