Isolation of cloned cDNA encoding mammalian ornithine decarboxylase.


During the growth of mammalian cells the level of ornithine decarboxylase ( OrnDCase ; L-ornithine carboxy-lyase, EC, the first enzyme in polyamine biosynthesis, undergoes rapid changes. As an initial step in the study of possible genetic mechanisms involved in these changes, we have isolated cDNA clones encoding OrnDCase . To obtain RNA enriched… (More)
