Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry represents putrescine N-methyltransferase (EC:, which catalyses S-adenosylmethionine (SAM)-dependent methylation of putrescine in tropane alkaloid biosynthesis. The protein displays little amino acid similarity to other plant methyltransferases, and probably evolved from spermidine synthase [PMID: 18653732, PMID: 19796640].
