  • Patent number: 11441168
    Abstract: A method for assaying activity of the enzyme spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SSAT) uses SSAT substrates by detecting their acetylated forms. SSAT substrates may include rimantadine and tocainide wherein their metabolism occurs in part by the action of the inducible enzyme SSAT to produce the acetylated metabolites N-acetylrimantadine and N-acetyltocainide respectively. SSAT activity may be correlated to pathologic conditions.

  • Publication number: 20170209272
    Abstract: Elevated levels of spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SSAT) gene expression expression were observed in breast, prostate and lung cancer cell lines. Elevated levels of SSAT gene expression were verified in tissues from patients with breast, prostate and lung cancer. Elevated SSAT gene expression is elevated in different human cancers and elevated SSAT gene expression may accordingly serve as a companion diagnostic biomarker for detection and monitoring of cancer progression.
