The review of works on amine oxidases of microorganisms is presented. Preparation, physical-chemical and kinetic properties of amine oxidases from archaebacteria Methanosarcina barkery, group of methane-producing archaebacteria, eubacteria, Sarcina lutea, Micrococcus rubens, M. lutea, representatives of Enterobacteriaceae family, such as Klebsiella and Escherichia, are considered. Besides, the amine oxidases obtained from mycelium of fungus Aspergillus niger are described. The works are considered, are performed both using classical biochemistry methods based on studying of substrate–inhibitor enzyme specificity and using gene engineering.
