Ornithine decarboxylase activity and polyamines in the anterior pituitary gland during the rat oestrous cycle.

Abstract

The biosynthesis of polyamines, an ubiquitous group of amines shown to be essential for normal cellular growth and differentiation, was studied in the rat anterior pituitary gland during the different stages of the oestrous cycle. The activity of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), which catalyses the rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of polyamines, was low… (More)
