Summaries for MAOB Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAOB Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the flavin monoamine oxidase family. It is a enzyme located in the mitochondrial outer membrane. It catalyzes the oxidative deamination of biogenic and xenobiotic amines and plays an important role in the metabolism of neuroactive and vasoactive amines in the central nervous sysytem and peripheral tissues. This protein preferentially degrades benzylamine and phenylethylamine. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MAOB Gene

MAOB (Monoamine Oxidase B) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAOB include deep brain stimulation for parkinson's disease and serotonin syndrome. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and cytochrome P450. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and electron carrier activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAOA.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAOB Gene

  • Catalyzes the oxidative deamination of biogenic and xenobiotic amines and has important functions in the metabolism of neuroactive and vasoactive amines in the central nervous system and peripheral tissues. MAOB preferentially degrades benzylamine and phenylethylamine.

Tocris Summary for MAOB Gene

  • Monoamine Oxidases (MAO) catalyze the oxidation of monoamines such as dopamine, serotonin and adrenalin. They are found bound to the outer membrane of mitochondria in most cell types in the body. Two subtypes of MAO have been identified: MAO-A and MAO-B.
