The activity of monoamine oxidase from human placenta mitochondria was determined with 2-phenylethylamine and benzylamine as substrates by the generation of hydrogen peroxide in a conjugated luminol-peroxidase system, using the chemiluminescence method. The monoamine oxidase was found to oxidize at a high rate MAO substrates and revealed high sensitivity to clorgyline, a specific inhibitor of monoamine oxidase type A. It was shown that the use of the chemiluminescence technique for determining the monoamine oxidase activity gives the results that are fully consistent with those obtained by other methods.
