Gene: MAOA (monoamine oxidase A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MAOA
Name: monoamine oxidase A
Description: Predicted to have primary amine oxidase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular biogenic amine metabolic process; cytokine-mediated signaling pathway; and dopamine catabolic process. Localizes to the cytosol and mitochondrion. Implicated in Alzheimer's disease; Brunner Syndrome; alcohol use disorder; autism spectrum disorder; and panic disorder.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: amine oxidase [flavin-containing] A; BRNRS; MAO-A; monoamine oxidase type A
