  • Abstract

    Monoamine oxidase (MAO) is an enzyme which is responsible for oxidative deamination of monoamines. MAO-B inhibitors are used for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease effectively and also in Alzheimer’s disease to some extent. MAO-A inhibitors are used as antidepressants. A study on MAO inhibitors is crucial in present day situation since an ultimate cure for many of the neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease is not yet accomplished. MAO inhibitors and cholinesterase inhibitors can represent a right choice for the design of novel drugs for many of the neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. The current paper is a review of various substituted MAO inhibitors which can act as a lead molecule for the design of novel drugs for neurodegenerative disorders.
