Using Northern blotting, the expression levels of the genes for polyamine metabolism regulatory proteins and clusterin have been measured in a series of 23 human prostate cancers (CaPs) dissected(More)
Polyamines, spermidine (SPD), and spermine (SPM) are intracellular polycations required for cell growth and differentiation. Their biosynthetic precursor, the diamine putrescine (PUT), is produced by(More)
We investigated the effect of sex hormones on the sex-dependent response of rat kidney ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity to cadmium (Cd) administration and the involvement of the(More)
1. In the liver, heart and brain of the European sea bass, putrescine concentrations are much higher than in the equivalent rat tissues; spermidine and spermine levels are smaller. 2. Ornithine(More)
Laparatomy of the rat dramatically induced hepatic ornithine decarboxylase that reached a peak 4 h after the operation. A similar pattern was shown by putrescine concentration. Spermidine was also(More)
