Monoamine oxidases: the biochemistry of the proteins as targets in medicinal chemistry and drug discovery.

Abstract

Monoamine oxidase (MAO, EC.1.4.3.4) has been a drug target for 60 years, with the primary rationale of developing drugs to treat neuropsychiatric disorders. The biological importance of MAO is to regulate amine levels is the brain and to metabolize amines and drugs in the periphery. This review of the biochemistry of MAO A and MAO B describes the functional… (More)
