Monoamine oxidase inhibition by moclobemide and 2-amino-ethyl carboxamide derivatives: mode of action and kinetic characteristics.


PMID 2089085

Abstract

The selective, reversible inhibitors of monoamine oxidase (MAO) moclobemide and Ro 41-1049 (selective for MAO-A), as well as of Ro 16-6491 and Ro 19-6327 (selective for MAO-B) inhibited the enzyme with an initial competitive phase, followed by a time-dependent inhibition of MAO. Ro 41-1049, Ro 16-6491 and Ro 19-6327, being activated by MAO into reversible adducts, fit into the classification as mechanism-based inhibitors. Conversely, since no product formation was observed after incubation of tissue homogenates with moclobemide, this drug probably belongs to the class of the "slow-binding" MAO inhibitors.
