The three major polyamines are normally found in chloroplasts of higher plants and are implicated in plant growth and stress response. We have recently shown that putrescine can increase light energy utilization through stimulation of photophosphorylation [Ioannidis et al., (2006) BBA-Bioenergetics, 1757, 821-828]. We are now to compare the role of the three major polyamines in terms of chloroplast bioenergetics. There is a different mode of action between the diamine putrescine and the higher… CONTINUE READING
