acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase activity

Known as: hydroxyindole O-methyltransferase activity, acetylserotonin methyltransferase activity, N-acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + N-acetylserotonin = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + melatonin. Melatonin is also known as N-acetyl-5… (More)
