The activity of spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) was enhanced in Ehrlich ascites tumor cells by the addition of lithium chloride. Na+ did not affect the enzyme activity. Total RNA was isolated from cells treated with LiCl and the relative abundance of the SAT mRNA was measured by Northern blot analysis. The levels in cells treated with LiCl… CONTINUE READING
