Abstract: Estradiol 17-P is known to cause growth in the immature rat uterus and cause ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity, an enzyme involved in polyamine synthesis which is growth related. Estriol is much less active in causing true growth. This study was designed to clarify the relative effects of estradiol and estriol on uterine ODC activity.
