Glover, Vivette and Halket, J.M. and Watkins, P.J. and Clow, Angela and Goodwin, B.L. and Sandler, M. (1988) Isatin: identity with the purified endogenous monoamine oxidase inhibitor tribulin. Journal of Neurochemistry , 51 (2). pp. 656-659. ISSN 0022-3042Full text not available from this repository.
Purified tribulin, an endogenous monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor, has been identified by direct probe insertion mass spectrometry as the indole-2,3-dione, isatin. A gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric assay for isatin has been developed and used to measure its relatively high concentrations in unpurified human urine, and in rat heart and brain. Isatin is a known compound with a broad range of biological activity; this is the first report of its presence in the animal body. Isatin is a potent inhibitor of MAO, particularly of MAO B (IC50, 3 ?M), and also binds to central benzodiazepine receptors (IC50 against clonazepam, 123 ?M).
