||Has a monoamine oxidase activity with substrate specificity for 2-phenylethylamine and tryptamine. May play a role in adipogenesis. May be a critical modulator of signal transmission in retina.
|Gene References into Functions
- Adipose tissue SSAO activity did not vary according to anatomical location and/or metabolic status in severely obese women. PMID: 27766585
- AOC2 mRNA is expressed in many tissues, however, the only tissues with detectable AOC2-like enzyme activity is found in the eye. PMID: 19588076
||Isoform 1: Cell membrane, Peripheral membrane protein, Note=Present on the surface of the cells, SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 2: Cytoplasm
||Copper/topaquinone oxidase family
||Expressed in many tissues with much higher expression in retina. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are expressed in adipose tissue, whereas isoform 1 only seems to be present in thymus, and isoform 2 only in testis.
