antizyme
Repressor of ornithine decarboxylase. Antizyme (29 kD) is a polyamine-inducible protein involved in feedback regulation of cellular polyamine levels. The N terminus of antizyme is not required for the interaction with ODC but is necessary to induce its degradation. Antizyme can be induced by IL-1. The elaborate regulation of ODC activity in mammals still lacks a defined developmental role but an antizyme-like gene in Drosophila, gutfeeling ( guf ), is required for proper development of the embryonic peripheral nervous system.
