Accepted name: (S)-scoulerine 9-O-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + (S)-scoulerine = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + (S)-tetrahydrocolumbamine
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:(S)-scoulerine 9-O-methyltransferase
Comments: The product of this reaction is a precursor for protoberberine alkaloids in plants
