Some New Findings on Monoamine Oxidase “The Key Enzyme of Biogenic Amines Degradation”

  • Henry M. Zeidan
Part of the Biodeterioration Research book series (BIOR, volume 4)


Monoamine oxidase (MAO) is postulated to play an important role in controlling the levels of certain neurohormones and other pharmacologically important amines (Schacht and Leven, 1977; Von Korff, 1979). This involvement has stimulated considerable interest in the physiochemical and enzymatic properties of the enzyme.
