Abstract: Decrease in monoamine oxidase and increase in diamine oxidase and adenylate deaminating activities were found in rat liver mitochondrial fractions after repeated injections of ethanol. A monoamine oxidase inhibitor pargyline and an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase theophylline prevented the increase in adenylate deaminating activity in a subfraction of mitochondrial membranes in the ethanol intoxicated rats. In a subfraction of soluble mitochondrial proteins pargyline did not affect but theophylline prevented completely the increase in adenylate deaminating activity. The stimulation of adenylate deaminating activity in mitochondrial fractions of rat liver in ethanol intoxication might be caused by: 1) transformation of mitochondrial monoamine oxidases (in the subfraction of mitochondrial membranes) and 2) activation (or increased biosynthesis) of the adenylate deaminase in the subfraction of soluble mitochondrial proteins. The adenylate cyclase system is probably involved in the latter process.
