Effects of testosterone and 17, β– estradiol on the polyamine metabolism in cultivated normal rat kidney epithelial cells

Abstract

Ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) and diamine oxidase (DAO) are important enzymes involved in the metabolism of polyamines (putrescine, spermidine and spermine). The influence of testosterone (T) and 17, β– estradiol (E2) on the activity of ODC and DAO was examined in cultivated normal rat kidney (NRK) epithelial cells. The results showed an increase in enzyme… (More)
