Monoamine Oxidase and Depression


Monoamine oxidase is a type of enzyme that helps neurons fire throughout your body. It’s formed in your liver and cleans up neurotransmitters in your brain once they’ve done their jobs. Besides neurotransmitters, monoamine oxidase cleans out tyramine, a chemical that helps regulate blood pressure.


Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (also called MAO inhibitors or MAOIs) block the actions of monoamine oxidase enzymes. Monoamine oxidase enzymes are responsible for breaking down neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin in the brain.
