General annotation (Comments)

Function

Inactivates histamine by N-methylation. Plays an important role in degrading histamine and in regulating the airway response to histamine By similarity.

Catalytic activity

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + histamine = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + N(tau)-methylhistamine.

Subunit structure

Monomer By similarity.

Subcellular location

Cytoplasm By similarity.

Tissue specificity

Expressed in jejunum, brain > lung, spleen, stomach > liver, kidney. Ref.1

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the class I-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. HNMT family.
