Monoamine oxidases (MAOs) are a family of enzymes that catalyze the removal of an amine group from a variety of monoamines. Type A (MAO-A) deactivates epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin; MAO-B metabolizes dopamine and phenylethylamine.
MAO inhibitors are antidepressants that block the action of MAO, thus raising the levels of monoamine neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, epinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin – which have significant effects on mood and behavior.
