Catechol–O–methyltransferase (COMT) is the enzyme responsible for the O-methylation of catecholamines widely distributed in tissues from various mammalian species and with high levels of activity. The hypothesis that the COMT is related to diabetes is based on evidence that there are some changes in catecholamine metabolism in patients who..
