Abstract

A structure-activity relationship study has revealed the importance of the aromatic ring and the optimum length of the chain between the aromatic ring and the nitrogen for the selective inhibition of MAO-B. Among the (-)deprenyl derived new compounds described in this study N-methyl-N-propargyl-(2-furyl-1-methyl)-ethylammonium. HCl(U-1424) seems to be the most promising selective inhibitor of MAO-B.
