We assessed the effects of ET-1 and ET-3 on tyrosine hydroxylase activity and expression, neuronal noradrenaline (NA) release, neuronal NA transporter (NAT) activity and expression, monoamine oxidase activity, and NA endogenous content and utilization (as a marker of turn-over) in the posterior hypothalamus of DOCA-Salt hypertensive rats.
An Analysis of the Influence of Selected Genetic and Hormonal Factors on the Occurrence of Depressive Symptoms in Late-Reproductive-Age Women.
New
Grochans et al., Szczecin, Poland. In Int J Environ Res Public Health, Dec 2014
CONCLUSIONS: (1) The presence of the s/s genotype of the 5-HTTLPR polymorphism in the serotonin transporter promoter region and the 3/3 genotype of the 30-bp VNTR polymorphism in the monoamine oxidase A promoter region does not contribute to the development of depressive symptoms in late-reproductive-age women.
Biomarkers in the diagnosis of ADHD--promising directions.
Review
New
Scassellati et al., Syracuse, United States. In Curr Psychiatry Rep, Nov 2014
Interesting data come from the noradrenergic system (norepinephrine transporter, norepinephrine, 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol, monoamine oxidase, neuropeptide Y) for their altered peripheral levels, their association with neuropsychological tasks, symptomatology, drugs effect and brain function.
Adjuvant therapies for HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders.
Review
New
Douglas et al., Philadelphia, United States. In Ann Clin Transl Neurol, Nov 2014
Multiple adjuvant therapies with various mechanisms of action have been studied (N-methyl D-aspartate [NMDA]-receptor antagonists, MAO-B inhibitors, tetracycline-class antibiotics, and others), but none have shown a clear positive effect in HAND.
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, 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.
EMSAM (deprenyl patch): how a promising antidepressant was underutilized.
Review
Henderson et al., New York City, United States. In Neuropsychiatr Dis Treat, 2013
The EMSAM patch is a unique monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) being the only antidepressant utilizing a transdermal delivery system.

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.
