Mitochondrial monoamine oxidase was inactivated by o-mercaptobenzylamine (1) and o- (2) and p-methylthiobenzylamine (5). Experiments were carried out to provide evidence for possible mechanisms of inactivation. The corresponding o- (3) and p-hydroxybenzylamine (4) are not inactivators. Four radiolabeled analogues of 2 and 5, having radioactivity at either(More)
3-Hydroxyanthranilic acid 3,4-dioxygenase (EC; HADO) was purified to homogeneity from beef liver with the use of two dye columns (Cibacron Blue and Reactive Green 19) and hydroxyapatite. Two active peaks of enzyme were isolated from the hydroxyapatite column or by nondenaturing chromatofocusing of the enzyme prior to hydroxyapatite. The two active(More)
Experiments are described to determine the origin of the 6-hydroxyl group of 6-hydroxyFMN produced by the substrate-induced transformation of FMN in the C30A mutant of trimethylamine dehydrogenase. The conversion of FMN to 6-hydroxyFMN is carried out in the presence of H(2)(18)O and 18O(2), and the results clearly show that the 6-hydroxyl group is derived(More)
We previously reported that 3-pyrroline and 3-phenyl-3-pyrroline effect a time-dependent inactivation of the copper-containing quinone-dependent amine oxidase from bovine plasma (BPAO) (Lee et al. J. Am. Chem. Soc. 1996, 118, 7241-7242). Quinone cofactor model studies suggested a mechanism involving stoichiometric turnover to a stable pyrrolylated cofactor.(More)
