Our data demonstrated that topical pre-treatment of resveratrol (10 micromol in 200 microl acetone/mouse) resulted in significant inhibition of UV-B exposure-mediated increases in (1) cellular proliferations (Ki-67 immunostaining), (2) protein levels of epidermal cyclooxygenase-2 and ornithine decarboxylase, established markers of tumor promotion, (3) protein and messenger RNA levels of Survivin, and (4) phosphorylation of survivin in the skin of SKH-1 hairless mouse.
Due to their co-location with ornithine decarboxylase in the cytosol, arginase I can preferentially direct ornithine to the synthesis of polyamines, while arginase II can direct ornithine to the production of proline and glutamate, as both arginase II and ornithine aminotransferase are located in the mitochondria (Figure 5).
