Description
Exhibits catechol O-methyltransferase activity. Involved in methylation. Predicted to localize to extracellular region and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including digestive system; male organism; nervous system; pleuroperitoneal region; and unfertilized egg. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; autoimmune disease (multiple); bulimia nervosa; cognitive disorder (multiple); and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human COMT (catechol-O-methyltransferase).
