CONTEXT Polyamines (putrescine, spermidine, and spermine) are polycationic amines derived from arginine, which is the precursor of nitric oxide (NO). Due to the close relationship between the metabolism of polyamines and NO metabolism, the alteration in polyamine homeostasis can affect the NO bioavailability at the endothelium. OBJECTIVES The objective of the study was to test the hypothesis that childhood obesity is associated with a significant modification of blood polyamines and to… CONTINUE READING
