Differential and functional interactions emphasize the multiple roles of polyamines in plants.
Biogenic amines putrescine, spermidine and spermine are ubiquitous in nature and have interested researchers because they are essential for cell division and viability, and due to a large body of their pharmacological effects on growth and development in most living cells. The genes and enzymes involved in their biosynthetic pathways are now established and characterized. In recent years, molecular aspects of polyamine action have also begun to emerge. Our model is the ripening tomato fruit i...Expand abstract
