The nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT) gene, spanning 16.5kb of genomic DNA with three exons and two introns, is mapped to human chromosome 11q23.1. The encoded protein consists of 264 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 29.6kDa. NNMT is expressed in cytoplasm.
NNMT (NP_006160.1, 1 a.a. ~ 264 a.a) full-length human protein.
Nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT) is a cytosolic methyltransferase enzyme. It catalyzes the N-methylation of nicotinamide, pyridines and other structural analogs. Hence, it plays a vital role in the biotransformation and detoxification of various xenobiotic compounds. Altered expression of the gene is associated with the pathogenesis of various diseases such as acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), parkinson′s disease, thyroid cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, lung, liver and oral carcinomas. In addition, variation in the gene might increase the risk of susceptibility to hyperlipidemia and migraine.
