Biomarker metabolites are of increasing interest in crops since they open avenues for precision agriculture, whereby nutritional needs and stresses can be monitored optimally. Putrescine has the potential to be a useful biomarker to reveal potassium (K+ ) deficiency. In fact, although this diamine has also been observed to increase during other stresses such as drought, cold or heavy metals, respective changes are comparably low. Due to its multifaceted biochemical properties, several roles for… 

K Deprivation Modulates the Primary Metabolites and Increases Putrescine Concentration in Brassica napus

The results showed that B. napus was highly sensitive to the lack of K and the expression of BnaNCED3 as a key gene in abscisic acid biosynthetic pathway which was associated with an increase in the levels of ABA.

Putrescine metabolism modulates the biphasic effects of brassinosteroids on canola and Arabidopsis salt tolerance.

Results indicate that a proper enhancement of BR signaling benefits plants in countering salt stress, whereas excessive enhancement is just as harmful as a deficiency, and highlight the involvement of crosstalk between BR signaling and Put metabolism in H2 O2 accumulation, which underlies the dual role of BR in plant salt tolerance.

Putrescine is involved in root cell wall phosphorus remobilization in a nitric oxide dependent manner.

Versatile roles of polyamines in improving abiotic stress tolerance of plants

In recent years, extreme environmental cues such as abiotic stresses, including frequent droughts with irregular precipitation, salinity, metal contamination, and temperature fluctuations, have been

Exogenous Putrescine Increases Heat Tolerance in Tomato Seedlings by Regulating Chlorophyll Metabolism and Enhancing Antioxidant Defense Efficiency

Crops around the world are facing a diversity of environmental problems, of which high temperatures are proving to be the most serious threat to crops. Polyamine putrescine (Put) acts as a master

Potassium deficiency reconfigures sugar export and induces catecholamine accumulation in oil palm leaves.

Potassium modulates central carbon metabolism to participate in regulating CO2 transport and assimilation in Brassica napus leaves.

Polyamine Metabolism in Scots Pine Embryogenic Cells under Potassium Deficiency

The findings emphasize the specific role(s) of Put under potassium deficiency and strict developmental regulation of PA metabolism in Scots pine.

Role of exogenously applied putrescine in amelioration of cadmium stress in Coriandrum sativum by modulating antioxidant system

The results elucidated very promising role of exogenously applied Put in stress mitigation and growth improvement of coriander seedlings under Cd stress and advocate the application of putrescine for stress alleviation in crop plants.



Specificity of polyamine effects on NaCl-induced ion flux kinetics and salt stress amelioration in plants.

It is suggested that the ameliorative affect of PAs is the result of a complex combination of factors which might potentially include PA transport and accumulation in the cell cytosol, their metabolization and the functional expression of the specific target proteins or signaling elements.

The role of putrescine in the regulation of proteins and fatty acids of thylakoid membranes under salt stress

The results suggest that Put regulates protein expression at transcriptional and translational levels by increasing endogenous polyamines levels in thylakoid membranes, which may stabilise photosynthetic apparatus under salt stress.

Multilevel Analysis of Primary Metabolism Provides New Insights into the Role of Potassium Nutrition for Glycolysis and Nitrogen Assimilation in Arabidopsis Roots1[W][OA]

regulation of enzymes at the level of transcripts and proteins is likely to play an important role in plant adaptation to K deficiency by maintaining carbon flux into amino acids and proteins, decreasing negative metabolic charge, and increasing the nitrogen-carbon ratio in amino acids.

The roles of polyamines during the lifespan of plants: from development to stress

Overall, the molecular mechanisms identified suggest that PAs are intricately coordinated and/or mediate different stress and developmental pathways during the lifespan of plants.

Role of putrescine in Lemna plants under potassium deficiency

It is inferred that putrescine does not cause K deficiency symptoms but that it plays a role in the replacement of K as an organic cation in K-deficient plants.

Responses to K deficiency and waterlogging interact via respiratory and nitrogen metabolism.

The results show that K deficiency and waterlogging effects are not simply additive, reshape respiration as well as nitrogen metabolism and partitioning, and are associated with metabolomic and isotopic biomarkers of potential interest for crop monitoring.

Cadmium-induced accumulation of putrescine in oat and bean leaves.

Cd2+ can act like certain other stresses (K+ and Mg2+ deficiency, excess NH4+, low pH, salinity, osmotic stress, wilting) to induce substantial increases in Put in plant cells.
