This work scrutinizes kinetics of decomposition of adrenaline catalyzed by monoamine oxidase (MAO) A and B enzymes, a process controlling the levels of adrenaline in the central nervous system and other tissues. Experimental kinetic data for MAO A and B catalyzed decomposition of adrenaline are reported only in the form of the maximum reaction rate. Therefore, we estimated the experimental free energy barriers form the kinetic data of closely related systems using regression method, as was done… 
How Monoamine Oxidase A Decomposes Serotonin: An Empirical Valence Bond Simulation of the Reactive Step
TLDR
The quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics simulation of the rate-limiting step for the serotonin decomposition, which consists of hydride transfer from the serotonin methylene group to the N5 atom of the flavin moiety, provides strong evidence for the validity of the proposedhydride-transfer mechanism.
Why does the Y326I mutant of monoamine oxidase B decompose an endogenous amphetamine at a slower rate than the wild type enzyme? Reaction step elucidated by multiscale molecular simulations.
TLDR
Investigation of simulation trajectories reveals possible sources of the point mutation effect, namely vanishing favorable electrostatic interactions between PEA and a Tyr326 side chain and an increased amount of water molecules at the active site due to the replacement of tyrosine by a less spacious isoleucine residue, thereby increasing the dielectric shielding of the catalytic environment provided by the enzyme.
Why Monoamine Oxidase B Preferably Metabolizes N-Methylhistamine over Histamine: Evidence from the Multiscale Simulation of the Rate-Limiting Step
Histamine levels in the human brain are controlled by rather peculiar metabolic pathways. In the first step, histamine is enzymatically methylated at its imidazole Nτ atom, and the produced
Dopamine Autoxidation Is Controlled by Acidic pH
TLDR
It is shown that for dopamine stability on a time scale of days, it is essential that the pH value of the synaptic vesicle interior is acidic, and it is demonstrated that the rate-limiting step is the formation of a hydroxide ion from a water molecule, which attacks the amino group that enters intramolecular Michael addition, giving rise to a pharmacologically inert aminochrome.
Hydride Abstraction as the Rate-Limiting Step of the Irreversible Inhibition of Monoamine Oxidase B by Rasagiline and Selegiline: A Computational Empirical Valence Bond Study
TLDR
Simulated QM/MM simulations of the rate-limiting step of the MAO inhibition involving the hydride anion transfer from the inhibitor α-carbon onto the N5 atom of the flavin adenin dinucleotide (FAD) cofactor verify that both rasagiline and selegiline are mechanism-based irreversible inhibitors and offer guidelines in designing new and improved inhibitors.
Quantum chemical (QM:MM) investigation of the mechanism of enzymatic reaction of tryptamine and N,N-dimethyltryptamine with monoamine oxidase A.
TLDR
The in silico project examined the metabolism of DMT and its primary analogue, the tryptamine (T), by the monoamine oxidase (MAO) flavoenzyme and reinforced that a hybrid mechanism, a mixture of pure H+ and H- transfer pathways, describes precisely the rate-determining step of amine oxidation.
Nuclear quantum effects in enzymatic reactions: simulation of the kinetic isotope effect of phenylethylamine oxidation catalyzed by monoamine oxidase A.
TLDR
The computed H/D KIE for the same reaction in aqueous solution and in the gas phase was fairly similar to the one in the enzyme, suggesting that the role of tunneling in the catalytic function of MAO A is insignificant and implicitly validates the assumed hydride transfer reaction mechanism.

Empirical valence bond simulations of the hydride transfer step in the monoamine oxidase B catalyzed metabolism of dopamine
TLDR
It is shown that MAO B is specifically tuned to catalyze the hydride transfer step from the substrate to the flavin moiety of the FAD prosthetic group and that it lowers the activation barrier by 12.3 kcal mol−1 compared to the same reaction in aqueous solution, a rate enhancement of more than nine orders of magnitude.
Empirical Valence Bond Simulations of the Hydride-Transfer Step in the Monoamine Oxidase A Catalyzed Metabolism of Noradrenaline.
TLDR
At atomistic empirical valence bond simulations of the rate-limiting step of the MAO-A-catalyzed NA (norepinephrine) degradation, involving hydride transfer from the substrate α-methylene group to the flavin moiety of the Flavin adenine dinucleotide prosthetic group, strongly support the fact that both MAo-A andMAO-B isoforms function by the samehydride-transfer mechanism.

TLDR
This work modeled the reaction of human MAO-B with benzylamine by means of QM/MM calculations based on density functional theory and found that a concerted asynchronous polar nucleophilic mechanism is supported.
Revealing Monoamine Oxidase B Catalytic Mechanisms by Means of the Quantum Chemical Cluster Approach
TLDR
It is proposed that good substratessuch as BA and PEA might follow the hydride transfer pathway while poor substrates such as NBA prefer the polar nucleophilic mechanism, which might suggest that MAO B can act by both mechanisms.

TLDR
A new two-step hydride mechanism for the MAO-catalysed oxidative deamination of amines is proposed that is in agreement with available experimental data and provided evidence against both traditional polar nucleophilic and single-electron radical pathways.

TLDR
The results show that the electrostatic preorganizations in both active sites are very similar, supporting the idea that both enzymes work by the same mechanism.
Structure-activity relations in the oxidation of phenethylamine analogues by recombinant human liver monoamine oxidase A.
TLDR
Results suggest that the binding site for the aryl ring is identical for phenethylamine and for benzylamine analogues and that steric interactions of the alkyl side chain with the enzyme strongly contribute to the binding affinities of a series of reversible inhibitors of MAO A.
Influence of the environment on the oxidative deamination of p-substituted benzylamines in monoamine oxidase.
TLDR
An in-depth computational analysis concerning the role of the enzymatic environment for the reaction mechanism of human MAO-B with different p-substituted benzylamines as substrates shows that steric and electrostatic effects from the active site environment turn the mechanism closer to an asynchronous polar nucleophilic mechanism.
