DESCRIPTION
Also known as LAEA_EMEND, laeA. Methyltransferase that performs automethylation at Met-207 (By similarity). No other methyl-accepting substrate has been identified yet (By similarity). Component of the velvet transcription factor complex that acts as a global regulator for secondary metabolite gene expression (PubMed:15075281). Controls the expression of the sterigmatocystin, penicillin, and lovastatin gene clusters (PubMed:15075281). Controls light-dependent formation of the velB-vosA complex, veA protein modification, and is required for light-mediated inhibition of sexual development (By similarity). Within the velvet complex, controls light-dependent secondary metabolism (By similarity). Involved in the defense response against Drosophila melanogaster larval grazing (By similarity). Component of the heterotrimeric velvet complex composed of laeA, veA and velB; VeA acting as a bridging protein between laeA and velB (By similarity).
