Reaction of fungal amine oxidase with beta-bromoethylamine.

Abstract

beta-Br-ethylamine is both a substrate and an irreversible inhibitor of amine oxidase from Aspergillus niger. The enzyme catalyzes the nonoxidative elimination of HBr from beta-Br-ethylamine to form acetaldehyde. beta-Br-ethylamine meets several criteria for an irreversible substrate analog or suicide inhibitor. 1) It inactivates the oxidized enzyme, but… (More)
