Copper-containing amine oxidase is an enzyme that can possibly be used as a selective sensing system of oxygen sensor-based biosensors for the determination of amines.
In conclusion it can be said that copper-containing amine oxidase from Pisum sativum is a promising bioselective material for the construction of amine biosensors.

The copper-containing amine oxidases (monoamine oxidase, semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase, histamine deaminase, amine oxygen oxidoreductase) are ubiquitous metalloenzymes as they have several essential functions in the metabolism of primary amines.
The AO family encompasses FAD-dependent enzymes (essentially MAO and polyamine oxidase) and copper-containing amine oxidases, having for predominant members the products of the genes AOC1, 2, and 3, the latter being named semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) or primary amine oxidase and also currently known as vascular adhesion protein-1 (SSAO/VAP-1) [5,6].
The enzymes whose molecules contain flavin adenine dinucleotide belong to the group of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) containing amine oxidases (FAD-AOs, EC 1.4.3.4); copper-containing amine oxidases have a tightly bound copper ion in their molecule (CuAOs, EC 1.4.3.6).
Copper-containing amine oxidases can be found in all kinds of organisms such as bacteria, yeasts, mushrooms, various plants, and animals [2-10].
