On the purification of L-ornithine decarboxylase from rat prostate and effects of thiol compounds on the enzyme.
Abstract The activity and stability of l-ornithine decarboxylase from rat ventral prostate is markedly increased by certain thiol compounds, notably dithiothreitol. The enzyme was purified aboutExpand

On the role of S-adenosyl-L-methionine in the biosynthesis of spermidine by rat prostate.
Abstract The isolation from the rat ventral prostate of a soluble enzyme preparation producing spermidine, CO2, and methylthioadenosine from putrescine and S-adenosyl-l-methionine is described. ThisExpand
