  • (noun): A molecule containing one amine group (especially one that is a neurotransmitter).

Some articles on monoamine, monoamines:

Vesicular Monoamine Transporter 1 - Function - Active Transport of Monoamines - Driving Force
... The active transport of monoamines from the cytosol into storage vesicles operates against a large (>105) concentration gradient ... The inward transport of the monoamine is coupled with the efflux of two protons per monoamine ... which pushes a high affinity amine binding site, to which the monoamine attaches ...
Monoamine Oxidase B
... Monoamine oxidase B, also known as MAOB, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MAOB gene ... The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the flavin monoamine oxidase family ...
Serotonin–norepinephrine–dopamine Reuptake Inhibitor - Current Antidepressants - MAOIs
... Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) were the first antidepressant agents ... The MAOIs work by inhibiting the monoamine oxidase enzymes that, as the name suggests, break down the monoamine neurotransmitters ... This leads to increased concentrations of most of the monoamine neurotransmitters in the human brain, serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine and melatonin ...
Monoamine Oxidase A
... Monoamine oxidase A, also known as MAO-A, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the MAOA gene ... Monoamine oxidase A is an isozyme of monoamine oxidase ... Inhibition of both MAO-A and MAO-B using a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAO inhibitor) is used in the treatment of clinical depression and anxiety ...
Serotonin–norepinephrine–dopamine Reuptake Inhibitor - Role of Monoamine Neurotransmitters - Monoamine Hypothesis
... The monoamine hypothesis postulates that depression is caused by a deficiency or imbalances in the monoamine neurotransmitters (5-HT, NE, and DA) ... that reserpine causes a depletion of monoamine concentrations in the brain ... Reserpine's effect on monoamine concentrations results from blockade of the vesicular monoamine transporter, leading to their increased catabolism by monoamine oxidase ...
