25959060 Results show low SAT1 brain expression in depressed suicides and implicate low SAT1 brain expression in major depression independent of suicide
25893668 Analysis shows a significant direct correlation between SSAT expression in Prostatic Cancer tissues and disease progression.
25849284 Data suggest that SAT1 plays role in apoptosis; overexpression of SAT1 in human embryonic kidney cell line leads to a rapid depletion of spermidine and spermine, arrest in cell growth, and mitochondria-mediated apoptosis.
25390069 Enhanced SSAT expression by proximal tubule epithelial cells leads to tubular damage, and its deficiency reduces the severity of renal I/R injury through reduction of cellular damage and modulation of the innate immune response
25277523 A role for SAT1 in homologous recombination.
24735382 In females, the TC genotype was significantly more frequent in alcohol-dependent patients than in non-alcohol-dependent psychiatric controls. No differences were found among the males.
24025154 study postulates a mechanism for SAT1 and SMOX down-regulation by post-transcriptional activity of miRNAs.
23963538 The Catabolic enzyme SSAT expression levels was up-regulated in both cell lines; however, the specific SSAT siRNA treatments prevented the EBR-induced apoptosis only in LNCaP (AR+) cells.
23903781 berberine inhibits cellular growth by affecting polyamine metabolism, in particular through the upregulation of the key catabolic enzyme, spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SSAT).
23891576 EBV-positive Akata cells demonstrated decreased SAT1 enzyme activity concomitant with altered intracellular polyamine level.
