Mitochondrial monoamine oxidase (MAO) has been considered to be involved in neuronal degeneration either by increased oxidative stress or protection with the inhibitors of type B MAO (MAO-B). In this paper, the role of type A MAO (MAO-A) in apoptosis was studied using human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells, where only MAO-A is expressed. An endogenous dopaminergic neurotoxin, N-methyl(R)salsolinol, an MAO-A inhibitor, reduced membrane potential, DeltaPsim, in isolated mitochondria, and induced… CONTINUE READING
