STRINGSTRING
COMT protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"COMT" - Catechol O-methyltransferase in Homo sapiens
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

Score
COMTCatechol O-methyltransferase; Catalyzes the O-methylation, and thereby the inactivation, of catecholamine neurotransmitters and catechol hormones. Also shortens the biological half-lives of certain neuroactive drugs, like L-DOPA, alpha-methyl DOPA and isoproterenol; Seven-beta-strand methyltransferase motif containing (271 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
MAOA
Amine oxidase [flavin-containing] A; Catalyzes the oxidative deamination of biogenic and xenobiotic amines and has important functions in the metabolism of neuroactive and vasoactive amines in the central nervous system and peripheral tissues. MAOA preferentially oxidizes biogenic amines such as 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), norepinephrine and epinephrine; Belongs to the flavin monoamine oxidase family (527 aa)
         
  0.987
MAOB
Amine oxidase [flavin-containing] B; Catalyzes the oxidative deamination of biogenic and xenobiotic amines and has important functions in the metabolism of neuroactive and vasoactive amines in the central nervous system and peripheral tissues. MAOB preferentially degrades benzylamine and phenylethylamine (520 aa)
         
  0.986
DDC
Aromatic-L-amino-acid decarboxylase; Catalyzes the decarboxylation of L-3,4- dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) to dopamine, L-5-hydroxytryptophan to serotonin and L-tryptophan to tryptamine (480 aa)
     
 
  0.979
CYP1B1
Cytochrome P450 1B1; Cytochromes P450 are a group of heme-thiolate monooxygenases. In liver microsomes, this enzyme is involved in an NADPH-dependent electron transport pathway. It oxidizes a variety of structurally unrelated compounds, including steroids, fatty acids, retinoid and xenobiotics. Preferentially oxidizes 17beta- estradiol to the carcinogenic 4-hydroxy derivative, and a variety of procarcinogenic compounds to their activated forms, including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Promotes angiogenesis by removing cellular oxygenation products, thereby decreasing oxidative stres [...] (543 aa)
     
 
  0.970
DBH
Dopamine beta-hydroxylase; Conversion of dopamine to noradrenaline (617 aa)
         
  0.968
CYP1A1
Cytochrome P450 1A1; Cytochromes P450 are a group of heme-thiolate monooxygenases. In liver microsomes, this enzyme is involved in an NADPH-dependent electron transport pathway. It oxidizes a variety of structurally unrelated compounds, including steroids, fatty acids, and xenobiotics (512 aa)
     
 
  0.967
PNMT
Phenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase; Converts noradrenaline to adrenaline; Belongs to the class I-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. NNMT/PNMT/TEMT family (282 aa)
         
  0.960
ADH1B
Alcohol dehydrogenase 1B, beta polypeptide; Belongs to the zinc-containing alcohol dehydrogenase family (375 aa)
     
 
  0.940
ALDH2
Aldehyde dehydrogenase, mitochondrial; Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 family member; Belongs to the aldehyde dehydrogenase family (517 aa)
     
 
  0.938
ADH6
Alcohol dehydrogenase 6 (375 aa)
     
 
  0.930
