Polyamines are widely distributed throughout microbial, animal and plant cells. They are universally associated with plant growth and cell division (1,2) and recently the role of a “second messenger” has been proposed for them (3). In microbial and plant cells, putrescine is synthesized either from arginine via agmatine or directly from ornithine. The putrescine formed serves as an acceptor for a propylami no moiety to form spermidine, and spermidine in turn serves as an acceptor of a second… CONTINUE READING
