The polyamine transport system (PTS) whose activity is up-regulated in cancer cells is an attractive target for drug design. Two heterocyclic (azepine and benzazepine) systems were conjugated to various polyamine moieties through an amidine bound to afford 18 compounds which were evaluated for their affinity for the PTS and their ability to use the PTS for(More)
Arginine and ornithine are known to be important for various biological processes in the testis, but the delivery of extracellular cationic amino acids to the seminiferous tubule cells remains poorly understood. We investigated the activity and expression of cationic amino acid transporters in isolated rat Sertoli cells, peritubular cells, pachytene(More)
