a·mine ox·i·dase

1. an oxidoreductase containing copper, and perhaps pyridoxal phosphate, and carrying out the same reaction as amine oxidase (flavin-containing). Synonym(s): diamine oxidase, histaminase
2. an oxidoreductase containing flavin and oxidizing amines with the aid of O2 and water to aldehydes or ketones with the release of NH3 and H2O2. Acted upon by antidepressants. Synonym(s): adrenaline oxidase, monoamine oxidase, tyraminase, tyramine oxidase

amine oxidase

(1) Amine oxidase (flavin-containing), EC 1.4.3.4 (Amine:oxygen oxidoreductase (deaminating) (flavin-containing)).
(2) Amine oxidase (copper-containing), EC 1.4.3.6 (Amine:oxygen oxidoreductase (deaminating) (copper-containing)).

Of note, semicarbazide used for reference blockade in our assays is no more the best SSAO inhibitor available to date; SSAO has even been renamed primary amine oxidase to signify that it is better defined by its substrates (endogenous or exogenous) rather than by its inhibitor(s) [46].
Nevertheless, our comparative study clearly indicated that none of the tested phenolic compounds directly inhibited primary amine oxidase, also named SSAO/VAP-1.

The enzymes used in their work include amino acid-lyases, (48)-(57) aromatic amino acid decarboxylases, (58)-(64) and amine oxidases.

The aim of the present study was to extract and purify amine oxidase from pea seedlings, to determine the activity and selectivity of the purified enzyme towards different amine substrates with a Clark-type oxygen sensor, and to examine the possible application of the enzyme as a bioselective element in amine biosensors.
The amine oxidase preparation was stable at -18[degrees]C and there was no detectable loss of activity in 6 months at this temperature.
This parameter A was used for the characterization of amine oxidase activity.
Instead, TOPA turned out to be a built-in partner, which the cell fashions (after the amine oxidase is made) by modifying one of the enzyme's component amino acids.
The molecular weight of pea seedlings amine oxidase (PSAO) has been found to be between 150 and 180 kDa [2, 7].
