By making knockout mice lacking either MAO A or MAO B, Jean C. Shih, a Professor at the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy, and her collaborators previously showed how each isoenzyme functions in the body.However, up until now, scientists have been unsuccessful at making a mouse lacking both MAO A and MAO B.
This all changed when Dr. Shih and her colleague, Professor Kevin Chen, noticed that one of the mice in an MAO B knockout litter was a little different from its littermates-it had a lower body weight and was extremely hyper-reactive when approached.
"Both MAO A and MAO B are critically important," says Dr. Shih.
"Interestingly," says Dr. Shih, "a similar single base pair mutation occurs in the MAO A gene in the men of a Dutch family who show impulsivity and aggressive behaviour."
