agonist will have some distribution in the brain. an inhibitor will have a different one. and the inhibitors effects will be much stronger where the enzyme is more prevalent. mao and comt don't have the same distribution, either in brain structures, or extra/intra cellularly, neuronal/glial, etc.
mentioned enzyme is the one that takes DA->NA. i i think disulfiram is an inhibitor.
