The effects of ethanol on rat brain monoamine oxidase activities
In contrast to the reported behaviour of human platelet MAO-B, chronic ethanol feeding does not significantly affect the sensitivities of either MAO-A or -B from rat brain to inhibition by ethanol in vitro. The thermal stabilities of rat brain MAO-A and -B are not significantly affected by chronic ethanol feeding.
