To study the molecular structure of guinea pig monoamine oxidase (MAO) and its phylogenetic relationship with other mammalian MAOs, we determined nucleotide sequences of putative MAO cDNAs isolated from guinea pig tissues. Both the 5′- and 3′-ends of the cDNAs were amplified using the RACE (rapid amplification of cDNA ends) method. The sequence (1924 bp) of a putative guinea-pig MAO-B cDNA covers a complete coding region that corresponds to 521 amino acids. We also analyzed a partial sequence of a putative guinea-pig MAO-A cDNA, which corresponds to 506 amino acids, but have left the region of 66 bp at the 3′-end undetermined. The nucleotide and deduced amino-acid sequences of the putative guinea-pig MAO cDNAs showed the highest homology with that of human MAO cDNAs among the known mammalian MAO sequences. These results suggest that guinea-pig MAOs are structurally similar to human MAOs. Our molecular phylogenetic data support the idea that guinea pigs and rodents diverged before the separation between rodents and other lineage leading to Primates and Artiodactyla.
