S-Adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (SAMDC; EC 4.1.1.50) is a key rate-limiting enzyme located in the polyamine biosynthesis pathway. When compared with other organisms, the plant SAMDC genes possess some distinct features because they are devoid of introns in the main open reading frame (ORF) but have an intron(s) in their 5' untranslated leader sequences, in which two overlapping tiny and small upstream ORFs (uORFs) are present. Our results show that the presence of the 5' leader sequence… CONTINUE READING
