The rat cerebral microvessels were isolated and assayed both for monoamine oxidase (MAO) and catechol-o-methyltransferase (COMT) activities. Cerebral microvessels and brain filtrate were found to contain both forms (A & B) of MAO. On a per mg protein basis, the cerebral microvessels contained the greatest activity of MAO and COMT than that of brain filtrate… CONTINUE READING
