|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_000231, 4128|
|Calculated MW||59682 Da|
|Other Names||Amine oxidase [flavin-containing] A, 188.8.131.52, Monoamine oxidase type A, MAO-A, MAOA|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-Monoamine Oxidase A Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||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. MAOA preferentially oxidizes biogenic amines such as 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), norepinephrine and epinephrine.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Single-pass type IV membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side|
|Tissue Location||Heart, liver, duodenum, blood vessels and kidney|

This gene encodes monoamine oxidase A, an enzyme that degrades amine neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. The protein localizes to the mitochondrial outer membrane. The gene is adjacent to a related gene on the opposite strand of chromosome X. Mutation in this gene results in monoamine oxidase deficiency, or Brunner syndrome.
