Substrate-specificity of mammalian tissue-bound semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase.

Although the existence of a membrane-bound (probably plasmalemmal) semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) is well established in various mammalian tissues, and especially within vascular smooth muscle, its importance and the possible consequences of its metabolism of certain physiological and xenobiotic amines in vivo are under continuing… CONTINUE READING
