Monoamine oxidases A and B (MAO-A and MAO-B) oxidatively deaminate neurotransmitter and xenobiotic amines. Since the cellular localization of the isoenzymes in the CNS and peripheral organs determines to a large extent which substrate has access to which isoenzyme, knowledge of their tissue distribution and cellular localization is essential. Here we describe how reversible and selective inhibitors of MAO-A and MAO-B [Ro 41-1049 and Ro 19-6327 (lazabemide), respectively] can be used, as… CONTINUE READING
