Polyamines (putrescine and spermidine) are present in almost all living organisms and participate in numerous cellular processes. In this study, we report the protective roles of polyamines against hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced oxidative stress. All of ahpC, katG, and katE genes, known to participate in the antioxidant defense mechanism against H2O2… CONTINUE READING
