Hey Alexey,

Mathematica does not have a built-in functionality of MellinTransform,
it has related
LaplaceTransform. You might either use LaplaceTransform to get to the
answer, or
use direct definition in terms of integrate:

In version 6:

In[4]:= MellinTransform[f_, x_, s_, o : OptionsPattern[Integrate]] :=
 Integrate[x^(s - 1) f, {x, 0, Infinity}, o]

In[6]:= MellinTransform[Exp[-a x], x, s,
 Assumptions -> a > 0 \[And] s > 0]

Out[6]= a^-s Gamma[s]

In[8]:= MellinTransform[BesselK[2, x], x, s, Assumptions -> s > 2]

Out[8]= 2^(-2+s) Gamma[-1+s/2] Gamma[1+s/2]

In[10]:= MellinTransform[ArcSin[x], x, s, Assumptions -> -1 < s < 0]

Out[10]= -((\[ImaginaryI] \[ExponentialE]^(-(1/2) \[ImaginaryI] \[Pi]
s) Gamma[1-s/2] Gamma[(1+s)/2])/(Sqrt[\[Pi]] s^2))
