Incubation of aldehyde dehydrogenase-free mitochondrial preparations with biogenic amines serotonin, tyramine, 2-phenylethylamine and 5-methoxytryptamine resulted in inhibition of enzymes activity of both outer (rotenone-insensitive NADH-cytochrome c reductase) and inner (succinate dehydrogenase, succinate cytochrome c reductase) mitochondrial membranes. Solubilization of mitochondria after the incubation did not influence the amine-induced alteration of succinate dehydrogenase activity. Pretreatment of the organelles with a mixture containing chlorgyline and deprenyl completely inhibited monoamine oxidase (MAO) activity and prevented the effects of all the amines studied on mitochondrial enzymes. MAO-dependent effects of 5-methoxytryptamine were fully reproduced by 5-methoxyindolyl-3-acetaldehyde (one of probable products of 5-methoxytryptamine deamination). The effect of the aldehyde was not prevented by chlorgyline and deprenyl. After selective inhibition of MAO-A by chlorgyline the order of MAO-B-dependent effects of biogenic amines on mitochondrial enzymes studied was as follows: tyramine greater than or equal to 2-phenylethylamine much greater than serotonin. In deprenyl pretreated mitochondria the potency of MAO-A-dependent effects of these amines was: serotonin greater than tyramine much greater than much greater than 2-phenylethylamine. The data obtained suggest that the product(s) of oxidative deamination of biogenic amines (probably the aldehydes) catalyzed by both types of MAO (MAO-A and MAO-B) are able to regulate the energy functions of mitochondria.
