Suggested roles for polyamine function, and the evidence for these functions, is reviewed. These include membrane stabilization, free radical scavenging, effects on DNA, RNA and protein synthesis, effects on the activities of RNase, protease and other enzymes, the interaction with ethylene biosynthesis, and effects on second messengers. It is concluded that… CONTINUE READING
