Liver microsomes have a strong ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) inactivating capacity in vitro. The present results suggest that this may be involved in regulation of ODC activity in vivo: (1) the ODC inactivating capacity of microsomes appears susceptible to in vivo modulation: a single administration of thioacetamide, which induces ODC, also causes a… CONTINUE READING
