1. White adipose tissue (WAT) from mice, rabbits, pigs and human subjects was investigated for the characterization of the tissue-bound semicarbazide-sensitive benzylamine oxidase activities (SSAO) present in each species. 2. Enzymes from mice, rabbits and pigs shared similar biochemical characteristics: they exerted histaminase activity, oxidized methylamine and acetylputrescine and were completely blocked by carbonyl reagents and by 3,5-ethoxy-4-aminomethylpyridyne (B24), in a dose-dependent… CONTINUE READING
