Expression profiles of sugarcane under drought conditions: Variation in gene regulation.
Arapiraca, Brazil. In Genet Mol Biol, Dec 2015
Total RNA was extracted from leaves and the expression of SAMDC, ZmPIP2-1 protein, ZmTIP4-2 protein, WIP protein, LTP protein, histone H3, DNAj, ferredoxin I, β-tubulin, photosystem I, gene 1 and gene 2 was analyzed by quantitative real-time PCR (RT-PCR).
Targeting polyamine metabolism for finding new drugs against leishmaniasis: a review.
Roma, Italy. In Mini Rev Med Chem, 2014
The enzymes, belonging to the spermidine metabolism, i.e. arginase (ARG), ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (AdoMetDC), spermidine synthase (SpdS), trypanothione synthetase (TryS or TSA), trypanothione reductase (TryR or TR), tryparedoxin peroxidase (TXNPx), deoxyhypusine synthase (DHS) and deoxyhypusine hydroxylase (DOHH) are promising targets for the development of new drugs against leishmaniasis.
A tumour suppressor network relying on the polyamine-hypusine axis.
New York City, United States. In Nature, 2012
Among the new tumour suppressors are adenosylmethionine decarboxylase 1 (AMD1) and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 5A (eIF5A), two genes associated with hypusine, a unique amino acid produced as a product of polyamine metabolism through a highly conserved pathway.
Regulation and function of polyamines in African trypanosomes.
Dallas, United States. In Trends Parasitol, 2012
Instead trypanosomatid S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (AdoMetDC), which catalyzes a key step in the biosynthesis of the polyamine spermidine, is activated by dimerization with an inducible protein termed prozyme.
Regulation of polyamine metabolism by translational control.
Philadelphia, United States. In Amino Acids, 2012
In this review, we present an overview of the translational control mechanisms of the proteins in the polyamine pathway, including ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), ODC antizyme, S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase and spermidine/spermine N(1) acetyltransferase, highlighting the areas where more research is needed.
Polyamines, androgens, and skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
Melbourne, Australia. In J Cell Physiol, 2011
The rate-limiting polyamine biosynthetic enzymes, ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) and S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase, are essential for mammalian development, with knockout of the genes encoding these enzymes, Odc1 and Amd1, causing early embryonic lethality in mice.
