Biochemistry and genetics of monoamine oxidase.


This chapter reviews the two mitochondrial flavin containing isozymes of monoamine oxidase. Section 1, "Biochemistry" discusses assays, substrates and inhibitors, phylogenic and tissue distribution, interactions with lipids, nutritional studies, protein structure, kinetic and chemical mechanistic proposals, and biosynthesis. Section 2, "Inheritance… (More)
