  • Root nodules of adzuki bean plant (Vigna angularis) contained a novel polyamine. The chemical structure of the new polyamine was determined to be NH2(CH2)5NH(CH2)4NH2(4-aminobutylcadaverine) based on gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The occurrence of 4-aminobutylcadaverine was specific to the root nodules, since the unusual triamine was not detected in other organs of the adzuki bean plant. Bacteroids, isolated from root nodules, contained both sym-homospermidine and 4-aminobutylcadaverine… CONTINUE READING
