Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the first step of the methylation pathway of phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis, the SAM-dependent methylation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) to phosphatidylmonomethylethanolamine (PMME).
Catalytic activity RHEA:11164: a 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine + S-adenosyl-L-methionine = 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-N-methylethanolamine + H(+) + S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine
EC 2.1.1.17
Pathway Phospholipid metabolism; phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis.
Subcellular location Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Similarity Belongs to the class VI-like SAM-binding methyltransferase superfamily. CHO2 family.
