Gene: Maoa (monoamine oxidase A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Maoa
Name: monoamine oxidase A
Description: Exhibits flavin adenine dinucleotide binding activity; primary amine oxidase activity; and serotonin binding activity. Involved in phenylethylamine metabolic process and serotonin metabolic process. Localizes to mitochondrial outer membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; Brunner Syndrome; alcohol use disorder; autism spectrum disorder; and panic disorder. Orthologous to human MAOA (monoamine oxidase A); PARTICIPATES IN alkaptonuria pathway; citalopram pharmacodynamics pathway; citalopram pharmacokinetics pathway; INTERACTS WITH (5-hydroxyindol-3-yl)acetic acid; 17beta-estradiol; 2-methoxyethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: amine oxidase [flavin-containing] A; Mao; MAO-A; monoamine oxidase; monoamine oxidase type A
