Other name(s): flavonol 7-O-methyltransferase; flavonol 7-methyltransferase; 7-OMT; S-adenosyl-L-methionine:3′,4′,5,7-tetrahydroxy-3-methoxyflavone 7-O-methyltransferase; 3-methylquercitin 7-O-methyltransferase [mis-spelt]
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:5,7,3′,4′-tetrahydroxy-3-methoxyflavone 7-O-methyltransferase
Comments: Involved with EC quercetin 3-O-methyltransferase and EC 3,7-dimethylquercetin 4′-O-methyltransferase in the methylation of quercetin to 3,7,4′-trimethylquercetin in Chrysosplenium americanum. Does not act on flavones, dihydroflavonols, or their glucosides.
