English term or phrase:upregulate
Ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) is required for the synthesis of polyamines.

ODC is therefore an essential enzyme for cell growth.
The polyamine products of the pathway initialized by ODC are associated with increased cell growth and reduced apoptosis.
But ODC is upregulated in a wide variety of cancers.
