Phenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PNMT) catalyzes the biosynthesis of adrenaline though methylation of phenylethanolamine (1). PNMT gene is reported to be involved in various human diseases including early-onset Alzheimer disease (2), Parkinson's disease (3), and multiple sclerosis (4). Expression of PNMT can be stimulated by nicotine (5).
