Monoamine Oxidase Assay Kit is a quantitative determination of monoamine oxidase activity.
MONOAMINE OXIDASES (MAO, EC 188.8.131.52) are a family of mitochondrial enzymes that catalyze the oxidative deamination of monoamines. MAO dysfunction is thought to be responsible for a number of neurological disorders. Unusually high or low levels of MAOs in the body have been associated with depression, schizophrenia, substance abuse, attention deficit disorder, migraines, and irregular sexual maturation. MAO inhibitors are one of the major classes of drug prescribed for the treatment of depression.
