Gene: COMT (catechol-O-methyltransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: COMT
Name: catechol-O-methyltransferase
CRRD ID: 737102
Description: Exhibits catechol O-methyltransferase activity. Involved in catecholamine catabolic process and methylation. Localizes to cytosol and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Implicated in several diseases, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; autoimmune disease (multiple); bulimia nervosa; cognitive disorder (multiple); and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Biomarker of breast cancer; leiomyoma; ovarian cancer; polycystic ovary syndrome; and urinary bladder cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: catechol O-methyltransferase; catechol-O-methyltransferase isoform; epididymis secretory sperm binding protein Li 98n; HEL-S-98n; testicular tissue protein Li 42
