Rasagiline and (-)deprenyl (selegiline), irreversible type B monoamine oxidase (MAO-B) inhibitors, protect neuronal cells through gene induction of pro-survival Bcl-2 and neurotrophic factors in the cellular models of neurodegenerative disorders. In this paper, the role of MAO in the up-regulation of neuroprotective Bcl-2 gene by these inhibitors was studied using type A MAO (MAO-A) expressing wild SH-SY5Y cells and the transfection-enforced MAO-B overexpressed cells. Rasagiline and (-)deprenyl, and also befloxatone, a reversible MAO-A inhibitor, increased Bcl-2 mRNA and protein in SH-SY5Y cells. Silencing MAO-A expression with short interfering (si) RNA suppressed Bcl-2 induction by rasagiline, but not by (-)deprenyl. MAO-B overexpression inhibited Bcl-2 induction by rasagiline and befloxatone, but did not affect that by (-)deprenyl, suggesting the different mechanisms behind Bcl-2 gene induction by these MAO-B inhibitors. The novel role of MAO-A in Bcl-2 induction by rasagiline is discussed with regard to the molecular mechanism underlying neuroprotection by the MAO inhibitors.
