Genetic background of extreme violent behavior.
New
Paunio et al., Stockholm, Sweden. In Mol Psychiatry, 28 Nov 2014
Our results, from two independent cohorts of Finnish prisoners, revealed that a monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) low-activity genotype (contributing to low dopamine turnover rate) as well as the CDH13 gene (coding for neuronal membrane adhesion protein) are associated with extremely violent behavior (at least 10 committed homicides, attempted homicides or batteries).
Pharmacological Strategies for the Management of Levodopa-Induced Dyskinesia in Patients with Parkinson's Disease.
New
Berg et al., Tübingen, Germany. In Cns Drugs, 24 Nov 2014
Promising results include the extension of L-dopa action without inducing LID of the novel monoamine oxidase B- and glutamate-release inhibitor safinamide; however, this had no obvious effect on existing LID.

Management of antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction.
New
Culhane et al., Australia. In Australas Psychiatry, 21 Nov 2014
CONCLUSIONS: The preponderance of evidence suggests that antidepressant s can be divided into high risk (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, tricyclic antidepressants, monoamine oxidase inhibitors) and low risk (agomelatine, bupropion, moclobemide and reboxetine) categories with regard to propensity for antidepressant-induced sexual dysfunction, although there is disagreement, particularly about mirtazapine, and methodological issues militate against definitive findings.
Long-term effectiveness of dopamine agonists and monoamine oxidase B inhibitors compared with levodopa as initial treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD MED): a large, open-label, pragmatic randomised trial.
New
Impact
Clarke et al., In Lancet, 27 Oct 2014
BACKGROUND: Whether initial treatment for Parkinson's disease should consist of levodopa, dopamine agonists, or monoamine oxidase type B inhibitors (MAOBI) is uncertain.
GABA from reactive astrocytes impairs memory in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
New
Impact
Lee et al., Taejŏn, South Korea. In Nat Med, Aug 2014
Here, we show that reactive astrocytes aberrantly and abundantly produce the inhibitory gliotransmitter GABA by monoamine oxidase-B (Maob) and abnormally release GABA through the bestrophin 1 channel.
Pharmacological treatment of Parkinson disease: a review.
Review
New
Impact
Lang et al., Hamilton, Canada. In Jama, May 2014
RESULTS: Although levodopa is the most effective medication available for treating the motor symptoms of Parkinson disease, in certain instances (eg, mild symptoms, tremor as the only or most prominent symptom, aged <60 years) other medications (eg, monoamine oxidase type B inhibitors [MAOBIs], amantadine, anticholinergics, β-blockers, or dopamine agonists) may be initiated first to avoid levodopa-related motor complications.
Antidepressants and the Risk of Hyponatremia: A Class-by-Class Review of Literature.
Review
New
Sabbe et al., Antwerp, Belgium. In Psychosomatics, May 2014
The risks associated with monoamine oxidase inhibitors, reboxetine, and bupropion could not be established owing to insufficient information.
The role of the monoamine oxidase A gene in moderating the response to adversity and associated antisocial behavior: a review.
Review
New
Gallardo-Pujol et al., Barcelona, Spain. In Psychol Res Behav Manag, Dec 2013
We focus on the most-studied polymorphism to date for antisocial responses to adversity: the monoamine oxidase A gene.
EMSAM (deprenyl patch): how a promising antidepressant was underutilized.
Review
New
Henderson et al., New York City, United States. In Neuropsychiatr Dis Treat, Dec 2013
The EMSAM patch is a unique monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) being the only antidepressant utilizing a transdermal delivery system.
Genetic mediators of neurocognitive outcomes in survivors of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
New
Impact
Pui et al., Memphis, United States. In J Clin Oncol, Jul 2013
Polymorphisms in monoamine oxidase (T1460CA) were associated with increased attention variability (P = .03).
Lysine-specific demethylase 1 is a therapeutic target for fetal hemoglobin induction.
New
Impact
Tanabe et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Nat Med, Mar 2013
We show here that lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) inhibition by RNAi in human erythroid cells or by the monoamine oxidase inhibitor tranylcypromine in human erythroid cells or β-type globin-transgenic mice enhances γ-globin expression.
Genetic factors in anxiety disorders.
Review
Maron et al., Würzburg, Germany. In Mod Trends Pharmacopsychiatri, 2012
Presently available clinical genetic studies point to a considerable heritability of anxiety disorders (30-67%), with multiple vulnerability genes such as 5-HT1A, 5-HTT, MAO-A, COMT, CCK-B, ADORA2A, CRHR1, FKBP5, ACE, RGS2/7 and NPSR1 suggested by molecular genetic association studies.
Apolipoprotein E influences melatonin biosynthesis by regulating NAT and MAOA expression in C6 cells.
GeneRIF
Zhou et al., Hefei, China. In J Pineal Res, 2012
A higher level of melatonin was demonstrated in cultured ApoE4-C6 cells than in ApoE3-C6 cells. NAT was up-regulated in ApoE4-C6 cells compared with ApoE3-C6 cells, and MAOA and MAOB expression decreased in ApoE4-C6 cells.

Other pharmacological measures like catechol-O-methyltrasferase (COMT) inhibitors like entacopone, telcapone and monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) inhibitors like selegiline and rasagiline are also useful, while L-dopa remains the gold standard in the treatment of PD.
