The study of ubiquitin-dependent increase in monoamine oxidase sensitivity to proteolysis and specific inhibitor, pargyline

Insertion of exogenous ubiquitin into rat brain mitochondria in the presence of ATP and the ATPregenerating system (creatine phosphate/creatine phosphokinase) results in the increase in: sensitivity of mitochondrial monoamine oxidases (MAO) A and B to inhibition by mechanism based inhibitor and incorporation of [3H]-pargyline, which was especially notable in the fraction obtained by immunoprecipitation of mitochondrial proteins with anti-ubiquitin antiserum and protein A Sepharose. This suggests that MAO is a potential substrate for ubiquitination in vitro. However, the content of the tritium label in this fraction was less than 0.1 % and not more than 0.25% of total radioactivity of [3H]-pargyline bound to control and ATP-ubiquitin treated mitochondria, respectively. Insertion of ubiquitin into mitochondria did not influence molecular masses of [3H]-pargyline labeled proteins. These results suggest that direct ubiquitination of MAO insignificantly contributes to marked changes in the sensitivity of MAO A and MAO B to proteolysis and specific inhibition found under these experimental conditions. It is possible that more complex processes are involved into realization of these effects during ATP-dependent ubiquitin incorporation into mitochondria.
