Does the Enzyme Monoamine Oxidase, Isoenzyme A (MAO-A) have an allosteric modulatory site? I ask because I would like to know if it is possible, in theory at least, for a positive allosteric modulator of MAO-A to be developed.

I think an allosteric modulatory site has already been found, but it's not specific to Isoenzyme A, if that's what you were looking for.

See these papers:
