Phorbol esters augment polyamine transport by influencing Na(+)-K+ pump in murine leukemia cells.


In this report, we elucidate the role of Na(+)-K+ pump in the regulation of polyamine spermidine (Spd) transport in murine leukemia (L 1210) cells in culture. Ouabain, known to bind extracellularly to the alpha-subunit of the Na(+)-K+ pump, inhibits the pump activity. The L 1210 cells were found to possess ouabain binding sites at 7.5 fmol/10(6) cells… (More)
