Monoamine oxidase (MAO) catalyzes the oxidative deamination of biogenic amines accompaned by the release of H2O2. Two subtypes, MAO-A and MAO-B, exist on the basis of their specificities to substrates and inhibitors. The regulation of MAO-B activity is important in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Twenty-seven species of plants used in traditional Chinese medicines, selected from an enthnobotanical survey, were used in an investigation of their inhibitory effect on MAO-B in rat… Expand
Monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) inhibition by active principles from Uncaria rhynchophylla.
TLDR
The isolated two known compounds, (+)-catechin and (-)-epicatechin, isolated here for the first time from Uncaria rhynchophylla, might be able to protect against neurodegeneration in vitro, and the molecular mechanism deserves further study. Expand
Selective MAO-B inhibitors: a lesson from natural products
TLDR
This review presents the latest discoveries in the search for selective MAO-B inhibitors from natural sources and classified compounds on the basis of structural analogy or source: flavonoids, xanthones, tannins, proanthocyanidins, iridoid glucosides, curcumin, alkaloids, cannabinoids, and natural sources extracts.

Inhibition of Pig (Sus domesticus) Brain Monoamine Oxidase Enzymes by Some Thai Herbal Extracts
TLDR
The results showed that the pig brain homogenate can metabolized p -tyramine substrate and the extracts from Rheum palmatum L. can inhibited pig brain MAO-B with an IC 50 value of 18.26 µg/ml, while those of Vernonia cenerea can inhibit pig brainMAO-A with a value of 3.53 µG/ml. Expand
Natural Monoamine oxidase inhibitors : A Review
Monoamine oxidase (MAO) is an iron containing flavoenzyme that catalyzes the oxidative deamination of biogenic amines accompaned by the release of H 2 O 2 . Two subtypes, MAO-A and MAO-B, exist onExpand
In vitro monoamine oxidase A and B inhibitory activity and molecular docking simulations of fucoxanthin
TLDR
The findings suggest that fucoxanthin is a reversible competitive hMAO inhibitor that could be used to manage PD. Expand
Monoamine oxidase inhibition by southern African traditional medicinal plants
TLDR
Ruta graveolens and Schotia brachypetala, Mentha aquatica and Gasteria croucheri exhibited good MAO-B inhibition activity, which support these plants traditional use and may lead to the discovery of novel MAO inhibitors. Expand
Herbal Natural Products As a Source of Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors: A Review
Drugs of natural origin still play a major role in the treatment of many diseases and as lead structures for the development of new synthetic drug substances. This review article deals theExpand
In Vitro Evaluation of Bacopa monniera Extract and Individual Constituents on Human Recombinant Monoamine Oxidase Enzymes
TLDR
Bacopa monniera is a traditional Ayurvedic medicinal plant that has been used worldwide for its nootropic action and inhibited the MAO‐A enzyme selectively, which led to a significant down-regulation in monoamine oxidase activity. Expand
Selective monoamine oxidase B inhibition by an Aphanizomenon flos-aquae extract and by its constitutive active principles phycocyanin and mycosporine-like amino acids.
TLDR
Results are important to explain the neuromodulating properties of the AFA extract Klamin, which is rich in phenylethylamine that would nevertheless rapidly destroyed by MAO-B enzymes without the inhibitory activity of the synergic active principles A FA-PC and AFA-MAAs. Expand
Evaluation of the inhibitory effects of eckol and dieckol isolated from edible brown alga Eisenia bicyclis on human monoamine oxidases A and B
TLDR
Findings implicate eckol and dieckol as inhibitors of hMAOs that might be of potential value in the management of Parkinson’s disease. Expand

Antioxidant activity of the monoamine oxidase B inhibitor lazabemide.
TLDR
It is indicated that lazabemide is a potent and concentration-dependent inhibitor of membrane oxy-radical damage as a result of inhibiting membrane lipid peroxidation, independent of MAO-B interactions. Expand
Type A and B monoamine oxidase activities in the human and rat kidney.
The present work has examined the distribution of the two isoforms of monoamine oxidase (MAO), type MAO-A and MAO-B, in the cortex and medulla of the human and rat kidney. Homogenates of renal cortexExpand
Inhibition of xanthine oxidase by benzothiazinone analogues.
Fourteen synthetic benzothiazinone analogues were tested for their inhibitory effects on xanthine oxidase. The enzyme, xanthine oxidase (XO) catalyses the oxidation of hypoxanthine to xanthine and ofExpand
New directions in monoamine oxidase A and B selective inhibitors and substrates.
TLDR
These recent developments have provided new therapeutic perspectives for the management of Parkinson's disease and seizure disorders via the use of selective inhibitors and amino acid amine prodrug substrates of MAO-B. Expand
Does monoamine oxidase type B play a role in dopaminergic nerve cell death in Parkinson's disease?
TLDR
It is concluded that the presence of MAO-B in dopamine-containing neurons does not contribute to vulnerability in PD, and its presence in some glial cells might have a protective effect against oxidative stress induced by dopamine metabolism. Expand
From moclobemide to Ro 19-6327 and Ro 41-1049: the development of a new class of reversible, selective MAO-A and MAO-B inhibitors.
TLDR
The study of the MAO inhibitory characteristics of several known and putative moclobemide metabolites did not allow the identification of a potent MAO-A inhibitor but led to the discovery of Ro 16-6491, a potentMAO-B inhibitor of novel chemical structure. Expand

TLDR
MAO A and B cDNAs from human, rat, and bovine species have been cloned and their deduced amino acid sequences compared and several functional regions have been identified that contain crucial amino acid residues participating in flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) or substrate binding. Expand
Confluentic acid and 2'-O-methylperlatolic acid, monoamine oxidase B inhibitors in a Brazilian plant, Himatanthus sucuuba.
TLDR
Assignments of the 1H- and 13C-NMR data using two dimensional (2D)-NMR techniques showed the active components to be known lichen depsides, confluentic acid and 2'-O-methylperlatolic acid. Expand
Biochemistry and genetics of monoamine oxidase.
TLDR
This chapter reviews the two mitochondrial flavin containing isozymes of monoamine oxidase, reviewing the cloning of their cDNAs, their intra- and interspecies homology and structural inferences made from deduced amino acid sequences. Expand
