Attenuation of monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) activity may provide protection against oxidative neurodegeneration. For this reason, inhibition of MAO-B activity is used as part of the treatment of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's patients. The hook of Uncaria rhynchophylla (Miq.) Jacks. (Rubiaceae) is a traditional Chinese herbal drug that is generally used to treat convulsive disorders. In this study, the fractionation and purification of Uncaria rhynchophylla extracts using a bioguided assay isolated… 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. Expand
Banisteriopsis caapi, a unique combination of MAO inhibitory and antioxidative constituents for the activities relevant to neurodegenerative disorders and Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Collectively, these results give additional basis to the existing claim of Banisteriopsis caapi stem extract for the treatment of Parkinsonism, including other neurodegenerative disorders. Expand
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
Isolation of the MAO-inhibitor naringenin from Mentha aquatica L.
TLDR
The content of naringenin in Mentha aquatica might explain its use in traditional medicine for depression-like conditions and help to isolate the compound(s) responsible for the MAO-inhibitory activity. Expand
Berry anthocyanins and their aglycons inhibit monoamine oxidases A and B.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that emerging neuroprotective effects of anthocyanins from berry fruits may be explained by an affinity of these polyphenols for MAO isoforms A or B, and it is shown that anthOCyanins and their aglycons achieve MAO inhibition in vitro that is compatible with central nervous functionalities.

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
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

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
