A functional single-nucleotide polymorphism a common normal variant of the gene for catechol-O-methyltransferase results in a valine to methionine mutation at position Val Met rs Catechol- O -methyltransferase is involved in the inactivation of the catecholamine neurotransmitters dopamineepinephrineand norepinephrine. The gene is associated with allelic variants.

The effect size of genotypic moderation was quite large: As the regulation of catecholamines is impaired in a number of medical conditions, several pharmaceutical drugs target COMT to alter its activity and therefore the availability of catecholamines.

Aspartate carbamoyltransferase Ornithine carbamoyltransferase Oxamate carbamoyltransferase Putrescine carbamoyltransferase 3-hydroxymethylcephem carbamoyltransferase Lysine carbamoyltransferase N-acetylornithine carbamoyltransferase. COMT is the name given to the gene that codes for this enzyme.

Allosteric regulation Cooperativity Enzyme inhibitor Enzyme activator.

It is increasingly recognised that allelic variation at the COMT gene are also relevant for emotional processing, as they seem to influence the interaction between prefrontal and limbic regions. Neurotransmitters and their receptors”. Chromosome 22 human [1]. Temporomandibular joint dysfunction TMD does not appear to be a classic genetic disorder, however variations in the gene that codes for COMT have been suggested to be responsible for inheritance of a predisposition to develop TMD during life.


Consequently, they increase the elimination half-life of levodopa and thus prolong the availability of levodopa to the brain without significantly affecting the Cmax or tmax of levodopa. Oroszi G, Goldman D December This page was last edited on 21 Novemberat Comparable effects on similar cognitive tasks, the frontal lobes, and the neurotransmitter dopamine have also all been linked to schizophrenia.

In the brain, COMT-dependent dopamine degradation is of particular importance in brain regions with low expression of the presynaptic dopamine transporter DATsuch as the prefrontal cortex. Levodopaa precursor of catecholamines, is an important substrate of COMT.

COMT inhibition in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

Zhu BT October Genes on human chromosome inhjbidores EC 2. This article relies too much on references to primary sources. The British Journal of Psychiatry.

Their effects and significance also in the treatment of de novo patients need to be clarified. Given the preferential role of COMT in prefrontal dopamine degradation, the ValMet polymorphism is thought to exert its effects on cognition by modulating dopamine signaling in the frontal lobes. Histamine N-methyltransferase Diamine oxidase. The gene variant has been shown to affect cognitive tasks broadly related to executive functionsuch as set shifting, response inhibition, abstract thought, and the acquisition of rules or task structure.

This “triple therapy” is becoming a standard in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Histamine N-methyltransferase Phenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase Amine N-methyltransferase Phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase.

They induce a dose-dependent inhibition of COMT inhibbidores in erythrocytes and a significant decrease in the plasma levels inhibicores 3-O-methyldopa, indicating their effectiveness as COMT inhibitors. The dyskinesias are managed by decreasing the daily levodopa dose in Parkinson’s disease patients with end-of-dose fluctuations. Entacapone acts mainly peripherally whereas tolcapone acts both peripherally and centrally.


Genetic variation inhibidorss functional impact on cortical dopamine tone has a strong influence on reward experience in the flow of daily life. Retrieved November 16, Tryptophan hydroxylase Aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase Aralkylamine N-acetyltransferase Acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase. When given with an inhibitor of dopa decarboxylase carbidopa or benserazidelevodopa is optimally saved. EC number Enzyme superfamily Enzyme family List of enzymes.

Research conducted at the Section of Neurobiology of PsychosisInstitute of Psychiatry, King’s College London has demonstrated an effect of COMT both in patients with bipolar disorder and in their inhibidkres, [36] [ unreliable medical source ] but these findings have not been replicated so far.

The Central Nervous System. Any compound having a catechol structure, like catecholestrogens and catechol-containing flavonoids, are substrates of COMT. Goetz CG May COMT inhibitors include tolcaponeentacapone and opicaponewhich are used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.

However, there seems to be a trend for tolcapone to induce more often diarrhoea and increase in liver transaminases compared with entacapone.

Thus, COMT inhibitors are clinically significant and beneficial adjunct to levodopa therapy in Parkinson’s disease patients with end-of-dose fluctuations.
