Regulation of polyamine biosynthesis in Escherichia coli


In Escherichia cod, the biosynthetic ornithine and arginine decarboxylases (EC and, respectively) are responsible for the biosynthesis of polyamines from ornithine and arginine, respectively. When E. coli cells are grown in the presence of increasing amounts of polyamines, a progressive increase in the amount of antizyme 1 and antizyme 2… (More)
