Indolethylamine N-methyltransferase (INMT) is involved in the methylation of dimethyl selenide (Me2Se) into trimethylselenonium (Me3Se+) in tandem with S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet) transforming into S-adenosylhomocysteine (AdoHcy). This reaction is inferred from the event in mouse (Mozier et al. 1988).
