    • Inhibition of monoamine oxidase by C5-substituted phthalimide analogues 

      Manley-King, Clarina I.; Bergh, Jacobus J.; Petzer, Jacobus P. (Elsevier, 2011)
      Literature reports that isatin as well as C5- and C6-substituted isatin analogues are reversible inhibitors of human monoamine oxidase (MAO) A and B. In general, C5- and C6-substitution of isatin leads to enhanced binding ...
    • Inhibition of monoamine oxidase by E-styrylisatin analogues 

      Van der Walt, Elizna M.; Bergh, Jacobus J.; Petzer, Jacobus P.; Malan, Sarel F.; Milczek, E.M. (Elsevier, 2009)
      Previous studies have shown that (E)-8-(3-chlorostyryl)caffeine (CSC) is a specific reversible inhibitor of human monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) and does not bind to human MAO-A. Since the small molecule isatin is a natural ...
    • Novel sulfanylphthalimide analogues as highly potent inhibitors of monoamine oxidase B 

      Van der Walt, Mietha M.; Terre'Blanche, Gisella; Petzer, Anél; Petzer, Jacobus P. (Elsevier, 2012)
      Monoamine oxidase (MAO) plays an essential role in the catabolism of neurotransmitter amines. The two isoforms of this enzyme, MAO-A and -B, are considered to be drug targets for the therapy of depression and neurodegenerative ...
