Abstract

The effects of styrene on mitochondrial monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity in rat and monkey brains were compared in vitro. After preincubation at 25°C for 20 min with 1 mM styrene monomer MAO-A activity in monkey brain was inhibited potently using 5-HT (for MAO-A substrate), but MAO-B activity in monkey brain and platelets were slightly inhibited using β-PEA (for MAO-B substrate). Styrene monomer also competitively inhibited MAO-A activity in a dose-dependent manner. MAO-A in monkey brain was inhibited by styrene in ascending order of potency: styrene trimer>styrene dimer>styrene monomer. In contrast styrene monomer slightly inhibited both MAO-A and MAO-B activities in rat brain mitochondria. In the present study styrene monomer potently inhibits MAO-A activity, but not MAO-B activity, in monkey brain mitochondria in vitro. These results indicate the inhibiting action of styrene differs depending on animal species and MAO isoforms. Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
