Cadmium induction of renal and hepatic ornithine decarboxylase activity in the rat. Effects of sex hormones and involvement of the renin-angiotensin system.

Abstract

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 renin-angiotensin system in mediating stimulation of the liver enzyme by the metal. The response of renal ODC to Cd, which occurs in intact adult males but not in females, is… (More)
