S-Adenosylmethionine decarboxylase from rat retina is similar to that isolated from other rat tissues with regard to kinetic parameters, pH optimum, putrescine requirement, and sensitivity to spermine. The enzymic activity increases during the first 7 days of postnatal life but decreases until the 20th day. After this period AdoMet decarboxylase activity increases, to reach the highest values at the 90th day. This behavior suggests that such enzymic activity is responsible for spermidine and spermine levels in rat retina and that a high content of retinal spermine might have a role in the photoreceptor outer segment renewal.

Abstract

S-Adenosylmethionine decarboxylase from rat retina is similar to that isolated from other rat tissues with regard to kinetic parameters, pH optimum, putrescine requirement, and sensitivity to spermine. The enzymic activity increases during the first 7 days of postnatal life but decreases until the 20th day. After this period AdoMet decarboxylase activity increases, to reach the highest values at the 90th day. This behavior suggests that such enzymic activity is responsible for spermidine and spermine levels in rat retina and that a high content of retinal spermine might have a role in the photoreceptor outer segment renewal.
