Dopamine metabolism II - MAO

Your latest trait focusses on MAO.

Rather than referring to the author of the “Little Red Book,” MAO refers to Monoamine Oxidase: a key enzyme involved in the breakdown of dopamine.

The activity of your MAO enzymes, which are encoded by your MAO-A and MAO-B genes, influences the function of key brain circuits that use dopamine. Such dopaminergic brain circuits are involved in the control of movement, motivation, response to stress, response to rewarding stimuli and other complex behaviors.

Your Dopamine Metabolism (MAO) trait therefore has significant effects on the way you are likely to think, feel and behave.
