21778461 There is dysregulation of the AANAT/ASMT/melatonin --> melatonin receptor axis in cholangiocarcinoma, which inhibited melatonin secretion and subsequently enhanced CCA growth.
21437622 The expression of AANAT in epithelial cells of striated ducts in human submandibular glands.
20586889 The functional expression of human SNA protein was closely associated with the elevated synthesis of N-acetylserotonin and melatonin in transgenic rice plants.
