Abstract: β‐Phenylethylamine (PEA) was characterized as a substrate for type A and type B monoamine oxidase (MAO) in brain and liver mitochondria of eight species at different substrate concentrations. In all species, at 10.0 μM, PEA was almost specific for type B MAO. At 1000 μM, however, the amine was common for both types of MAO in rat brain and liver, human brain and liver, mouse brain, guinea pig brain and liver, and bovine brain, while it was specific for type B MAO in mouse liver, rabbit… Expand
The oxidation of adrenaline and noradrenaline by the two forms of monoamine oxidase from human and rat brain
TLDR
The results suggest that the rat may not provide a close model of the human for studies on the effects of MAO inhibitors on brain noradrenaline metabolism. Expand
The deamination of dopamine by human brain monoamine oxidase
TLDR
Enzyme titration studies and comparisons of the substrate specificities of MAO-A andMAO-B across the brain indicated that dopamine was metabolised by the same MAO active centres as other monoamines. Expand
Enzyme properties of monoamine oxidase in the frontal cortex and liver of the gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus).
TLDR
Enzyme properties of monoamine oxidase in the frontal cortex and liver of the gerbil were investigated using 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), benzylamine (Bz) and tyramine (Tyr) as substrates, indicating the same substrate specificity as that in rats. Expand
The Metabolism of Dopamine by Both Forms of Monoamine Oxidase in the Rat Brain and Its Inhibition by Cimoxatone
TLDR
The activity of MAO‐A was lower in old rats than in young rats, and the same degree of decrease was found for 5‐hydroxy‐tryptamine as for dopamine as substrates for this enzyme form. Expand
Monoamine oxidase: from genes to behavior.
TLDR
MAO A and B knock-out mice are valuable models for investigating the role of monoamines in psychoses and neurodegenerative and stress-related disorders and show increased reactivity to stress. 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
MDL 72145, an Enzyme‐Activated Irreversible Inhibitor with Selectivity for Monoamine Oxidase Type B
TLDR
In vitro, the compound displayed time‐dependent pseudo‐first‐order irreversible inhibitory characteristics with high selectivity for the B form of rat brain mitochondrial MAO and selective protection against inactivation of the two forms of MAO by MDL 72145 was obtained by preincu‐bating the enzyme with suitable concentrations of the selective A and B substrates.

Selective Inhibition by Monoamine Oxidase (MAO) Inhibitors of the Iodotyrosine Formation Induced by MAO Substrates in Bovine Thyroid Tissue
Monoamine oxidase (EC 1.4.3.4) (MAO) may probably be involved in the hydrogen peroxide generation required for the iodination process in the thyroid tissue (1,2). Biogenic amines have beenExpand
Inhibition of monoamine oxidase modulates the behaviour of semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO)
TLDR
Findings suggest a link between SSAO and cellular stress and may have importance in the context of the recent finding that tissue-SSAO is identical to a vascular adhesion protein (VAP1), involved in the process of inflammation. Expand
Regional Inhibition of Monoamine Oxidase Activity by Administration of Clorgyline in Rat Brain
TLDR
The MAO‐inhibiting effect of clorgyline administered intraperitoneally was unevenly distributed in the discrete brain nuclei and the regional difference depended upon the dose and the duration of the clorGYline administration. Expand

TLDR
Atypical characteristics in substrate specificity found in chick tissues support the idea that the type A and type B concept cannot be applied uncritically to all tissues from all species. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that the amines of brain may be cataboblized by specific types of monoamine oxidase in vivo. Expand
Oxidation of beta-phenylethylamine by both types of monoamine oxidase: effects of substrate concentration and pH.
TLDR
The results suggest that the remarkable changes in substrate specificity observed at different PEA concentrations and at different pHs may be due to the strong substrate inhibition of type B MAO. Expand
Substrate specificity and inhibitor sensitivity of monoamine oxidase in rat kidney mitochondria.
TLDR
Preincubation of kidney mitochondria with histamine resulted in a time- and oxygen-dependent irreversible inhibition of both type A and type B MAO activity; the exact nature of the inhibitory agent and its mode of action remain to be determined. Expand
The reaction of bovine and rat liver monoamine oxidase with [14C]-clorgyline and [14C]-deprenyl.
TLDR
Highly purified monoamine oxidase from beef and rat liver has been compared with regard to the presence of A and B type enzymes and stoichiometrically bound pargyline is bound to the beef enzyme in amounts in considerable stoichiometric excess indicating nonspecific binding. Expand

TLDR
It can be concluded that, when sensitivity of MAO to clorgyline or deprenyl is studied, it is necessary to check the effect of substrate concentration for each substrate and enzyme preparation, suspecting the different affinities of the substrate for type A and type B MAO. Expand
