Polyamines (PAs) are small aliphatic amines that play a major role in multicellular functions. The PA levels are controlled by ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), the rate limiting enzyme of PA biosynthesis. α-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) is the ODC inhibitor, which has been shown to act as an antiproliferative agent in human cancer cells by irreversibly inhibiting ODC, which is overexpressed in breast cancer cells. Roscovitine (ROSC; CYC202), a selective cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, induces… CONTINUE READING
