Ornithine decarboxylase (L-ornithine carboxylase, EC 4.1.1.17) is an important enzyme in polyamine synthesis. Its activity is influenced by several peptides hormones, including growth hormones, which have physiological significance in various growth situations. A crude ovine pituitary growth hormone preparation (NIH-GH-S10) was subjected to gel exclusion… CONTINUE READING
