General description

Cyanamide is an effective agent to treat alcoholism. Cyanamide in aqueous solution or in the form of its calcium salt is used as a fertilizer in agriculture. It is a potent inhibitor of liver aldehyde dehydrogenases in vivo.

Application

Cyanamide was used as nitrogen source in thermal transformation of metal oxide nanoparticles into nanocrystalline metal nitrides. It was used in the synthesis of mesoporous graphitic C3N4.

Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) is principally found stored in three main cell types - i) serotonergic neurons in the CNS and in the intestinal myenteric plexus, ii) enterochromaffin cells in the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract, and iii) in blood platelets. Metabolism of serotonin is carried out primarily by the outer mitochondrial membrane enzyme monoamine oxidase (MAO), which occurs as two molecular subtypes called MAO-A and MAO-B.
