and in combination with a-MO, to block polyamine biosyn thesis. MGBG is a potent inhibitor of S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (2) and also is an antitumor drug with extremely toxic side effects both in experimental animals and in humans (see Ref. 1 2 for a review). MGBG can also be toxic to cells in culture and is known to introduce chromosornal breaks (for example, see Ref. 3). MGBG also induces profound alterations in mitochondriab morphology in a variety of cell types, including… CONTINUE READING
