General description

Monoamine Oxidase B (MAO-B) is a mitochondrial flavo enzyme. It is mainly found in the brain in dopaminergic, serotonergic, and histaminergic neurons and astrocytes.
Monoamine Oxidase B is encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome Xp11.3.


Anti-Monoamine Oxidase B specifically recognizes human, mouse, and rat MAO-B.


Anti-Monoamine Oxidase B antibody has been used in western blotting.
Anti-Monoamine Oxidase B antibody produced in rabbit has also been used in coimmunoprecipitation (co-IP) and immunohistochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) is considered the predominant isoform responsible for dopamine metabolism in the human central nervous system (CNS). MAO-B activity correlates with personality traits. Alterations in MAO-B activity may underlie dopamine pathobiology in major depression. Selective MAO-B inhibitors elevate synaptosomal dopamine concentrations, and have recently shown clinical efficacy in the treatment of early Parkinson′s disease.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2–8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in “frost-free” freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilutions should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.
