Title: Chromone-2- and -3-carboxylic acids inhibit differently monoamine oxidases A and B
Issue Date: 2010
Abstract: Chromone carboxylic acids were evaluated as human monoamine oxidase A and B (hMAO-A and hMAOB)inhibitors. The biological data indicated that only chromone-3-carboxylic acid is a potent hMAO-Binhibitor, with a high degree of selectivity for hMAO-B compared to hMAO-A. Conversely the chromone-2-carboxylic acid resulted almost inactive against both MAO isoforms. Docking experiments wereperformed to elucidate the reasons of the different MAO IC50 data and to explain the absence of activityversus selectivity, respectively.
