Glucocorticoid regulation of spermidine acetylation in the rat brain.

The effect of glucocorticoids on polyamine metabolism has been elucidated further by measuring putrescine, spermidine, and spermine levels as well as ornithine decarboxylase, S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase, and N1-acetylspermidine transferase activities in the hippocampus, cerebellar cortex, vermis, and deep nuclei of adrenalectomized rats. At 6 h after… CONTINUE READING
