The evaluation of 1,4-benzoquinones as inhibitors of human monoamine oxidase
The monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzymes are of considerable pharmacological interest and inhibitors are used in the clinic for the treatment of major depressive disorder and Parkinson's disease. A limited number of studies ...
Inhibition of monoamine oxidase by 8-[(phenylethyl)sulfanyl]caffeine analogues
In a previous study we have investigated the monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitory properties of a series of 8-sulfanylcaffeine analogues. Among the compounds studied, 8-[(phenylethyl)sulfanyl]caffeine (IC50 = 0.223 lM) was ...
Indanones as high-potency reversible inhibitors of monoamine oxidase
Recent reports document that α-tetralone (3,4-dihydro-2H-naphthalen-1-one) is an appropriate scaffold for the design of high-potency monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors. Based on the structural similarity between α-tetralone ...
Evaluation of natural and synthetic 1,4-naphthoquinones as inhibitors of monoamine oxidase
Previous reports have documented that 1,4-naphtho- quinones act as inhibitors of the monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzymes. In particular, fractionation of the extracts of cured tobacco leafs has led to the charac- terization ...
Inhibition of monoamine oxidase by benzoxathiolone analogues
Inhibitors of the monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzymes are considered useful therapeutic agents, and are used in the clinic for the treatment of depressive illness and Parkinson’s disease. In addition, MAO inhibitors are also ...
