Senescence of Petunia hybrida L. flowers is accompanied by a climacteric pattern in ethylene production and a rapid decline in the levels of putrescine and spermidine during the preclimacteric phase. The decrease in spermidine is caused by the decline in the availability of putrescine which is initially synthesized from L-arginine via agmatine and N-carbamoylputrescine. Inhibition of putrescine and polyamine synthesis resulted in a rapid drop in the levels of putrescine and spermidine without… CONTINUE READING
