A novel calcium-independent enzyme capable of incorporating putrescine into proteins.


A Ca(++)-independent enzyme capable of incorporating [3H]-putrescine into proteins was detected in the rat intestine mucosa. The Ca(++)-independent incorporation of [3H]-putrescine into proteins was temperature-, pH-, time-, and dose-dependent. However, this enzyme was absent in the gastric mucosa. Similar to testicular Ca(++)-dependent transglutaminase… (More)
