Oxygen dependency of monoamine oxidase activity in the intact lung

Hydrogen peroxide generated by monoamine oxidase (MAO)-mediated deamination of biogenic amines has been implicated in cell signaling and oxidative injury. Because the pulmonary endothelium is a site of metabolism of monoamines present in the venous return, this brings into question a role for MAO in hyperoxic lung injury. The objective of this study was to evaluate the O(2) dependency of the MAO reaction in the lung. To this end, we measured the pulmonary venous effluent concentrations of the MAO substrate [(14)C]phenylethylamine and its metabolite [(14)C]phenylacetic acid after the bolus injection of either phenylethylamine or phenylacetic acid into the pulmonary artery of perfused rabbit lungs over a range of PO(2) values from 16 to 518 Torr. The apparent Michaelis constant for O(2) was approximately 18 microM, which is more than an order of magnitude less that measured for purified MAO. The results suggest a minimal influence of high O(2) on MAO activity in the normal lung and demonstrate the importance of measuring reaction kinetics in the intact organ.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
