The main free amines identified during growth and development of grapevine microcuttings of rootstock 41 B, (Vitis vinifera cv. Chasselas × Vitis berlandieri) cultivated in vitro were agmatine, putrescine, spermidine, spermine, diaminopropane and tyramine (an aromatic amine). Amine composition differed according to tissue, with diaminopropane the major(More)
Arginine decarboxylase (ADC), ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), diamine oxydase (DAO) free amine and conjugated amine titers were estimated in leaf explants of Chrysanthemum morifolium Ramat. var. Spinder cultivated in vitro in relation to hormone treatment. Addition of benzyladenine (BA) to a basal medium caused the formation of buds on the explants. BA plus(More)
In ungerminated rice seeds, (Japonica rice variety, CV Tapei 309), the content of free amines (putrescine, spermidine, spermine, tyramine) was higher in seed lots having a low germination frequency compared to those with high germination potential. Conversely, amine conjugates (di-feruloylputrescine, di-feruloylspermidine, diferuloyldiaminopropane and(More)
In vitro formation of roots is obtained directly, without intermediate growth of callus, from foliar explants of a tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) plant cultured on Murashige and Skoog medium containing IAA. Auxin-induced root formation was accompanied by significant changes in hydroxycinnamoylputrescine levels. Increasing levels were found in leaf explants(More)
The primary free polyamines identified during growth and development of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch.) microcuttings cultivated in vitro were putrescine, spermidine and spermine. Polyamine composition differed according to tissue and stages of development; putrescine was predominant in aerial green tissues and roots. α-DL-difluoromethylarginine(More)
Hydroxycinnamoyl putrescines promote the cell multiplication of leaf discs of a tobacco mutant, RMB7, cultivatedin vitro on the Murashige and Skoog medium. This mutant never accumulates these molecules during its development and does not enter in floweirng. Maximal effect is obtained at 2.5·10−4M. The same molecules inhibit bud formation ofNicotiana tabacum(More)
The main free amines identified during growth and development of rice seedlings were agmatine, putrescine, spermidine, diaminopropane and tyramine. Amine composition differed according to tissue and stages of development. Conjugated amines were only found in roots. We present evidence that arginine decarboxylase (ADC) regulates putrescine during the(More)
In Chrysanthemum leaf explants cultivated in vitro the capacity to covalently link polyamines to protein substances exists. This plant enzyme activity shows some similarities with mammalian transglutaminases. In foliar explants cultured on a medium promoting bud or root formation increasing levels of transglutaminase-like activity occurred during the first(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by episodes of immune attacks and oligodendrocyte death leading to demyelination and progressive functional deficits. New therapeutic strategies are needed to stimulate the spontaneous regenerative process observed in some patients. Spontaneous myelin repair relies on the mobilization and(More)
