The metabolism of [1,4-(14)C]putrescine and [terminal methylene-(3)H]spermidine was studied in the fruit pericarp (breaker stage) discs of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) cv Rutgers, and the metabolites identified by high performance liquid chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The metabolism of both putrescine and spermidine was relatively slow; in 24 hours about 25% of each amine was metabolized. The (14)C label from putrescine was incorporated into spermidine, gamma… CONTINUE READING
