Involvement of protein kinase C in the regulation of ornithine decarboxylase mRNA by phorbol esters in rat hepatoma cells.

Abstract

The tumor promoter 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) stimulates a rapid increase in ornithine decarboxylase (EC 4.1.1.17; ODC) activity in target cells. Here we demonstrate that this process involves a rapid accumulation of ODC mRNA, which is maximal 3 h after treatment (three- to eightfold greater than control cells) and decays to control levels… (More)
