Gene: ASMT (acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ASMT
Name: acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase
Description: This gene belongs to the methyltransferase superfamily, and is located in the pseudoautosomal region (PAR) at the end of the short arms of the X and Y chromosomes. The encoded enzyme catalyzes the final reaction in the synthesis of melatonin, and is abundant in the pineal gland. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been noted for this gene.

Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: acetylserotonin methyltransferase (Y chromosome); acetylserotonin N-methyltransferase; ASMTY; HIOMT; HIOMTY; hydroxyindole O-methyltransferase
