Over many years evidence accumulated that circadian rhythms are related to psychiatric disorders.1-3 However, a mechanistic relationship between the circadian clock and mood related behaviors remained enigmatic. Now, we have reported that monoamine oxidase A (MAOA), a mitochondrial enzyme degrading catecholamines including dopamine, is regulated by components of the circadian clock.4 Interestingly, this regulation is variable depending on cell type, indicating the presence of cell type specific… CONTINUE READING
