Catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT) catalyzes the conversion of hydroxylated estrogen metabolites into their methylated forms. 2-hydroxyestradiol, a substrate for COMT, acts as an anti-estrogen in the body. Fibroids are known to have high levels of COMT and thus are able to eliminate 2-hydroxyestradiol from the local environment, promoting the growth stimulating effect of estradiol. It has been theorized that inhibition of COMT will result in a decrease in the estrogen effect upon fibroids, possibly resulting in tumor shrinkage.
