Abstract:Polyamines (putrescine, spermidine and spermine) are aliphatic amines that are produced by the action of ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) in a rate-limiting and protein kinase C (PKC)-regulated step. Because high levels of polyamines are found in the synovial fluid of arthritic patients, the aim of the present study was to identify the role of peripherally produced polyamines in a model of inflammatory pain induced by adjuvant. The subcutaneous injection of Complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA, 50 μL/paw) caused the d…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
