Summary

A coupled peroxidatic oxidation technique is presented which employs benzylamine and tyramine as substrates and clorgyline, deprenyl, phenelzine and pargyline as specific inhibitors. Using this technique with frozen sections of human term placenta and rat liver, the histochemical localization of monoamine oxidase A and B and benzylamine oxidase has been demonstrated.
