  Polyamines (PAs) are molecules involved in a variety of functions and present in a diverse set of organisms, from prokaryotes to plants to humans. There are a few common types of PAs and the particular species of PA, as well as its particular func. The cellular mechanisms controlling adaptive intestinal mucosal hypo- and hyperplasia are poorly understood but changes in tissue polyamine levels and in the activity of the key enzyme controlling their synthesis (ornithine decarboxylase: ODC) and degradation (diamine Cited by:

  SUMMARY Polyamines are small, abundant, aliphatic molecules present in all mammalian cells. Within the context of the cell, they play a myriad of roles, from modulating nucleic acid conformation to promoting cellular proliferation and signaling. In addition, polyamines have emerged as important molecules in virus-host interactions. Many viruses have been shown to require polyamines Cited by:   Plant polyamines are preferentially detected in actively growing tissues and under stress conditions and have been implicated in the control of cell division, embryogenesis, root formation, fruit development and ripening, and responses to biotic and abiotic stresses (Kumar et al., ).The molecular mechanism of how polyamines act in these processes had remained by:

BIOCHIMICA ET BIOPHYSICA ACTA BBA POLYAlVIINES IN THE DEVELOPING RAT AND IN SUPPORTIVE TISSUES DIANE H. RUSSELL AND THOMAS A. McVICKER National Cancer Institute, National Institutes o/Health, Baltimore Cancer Research Center, Labora- ory o/ Pharmacology, Baltimore, Md. (U.S.A.) (Received July 26th, ) SUMMARY Considerable putrescine and Cited by: Polyamines are ubiquitous intracellular cationic amines recognized as participants in cell proliferation and differentiation in many tissues, especially those of intestinal tract development, absorption, and biologic activity, in both sucklings and adults of the species.

The synthesis of polyamines is an active process in the mammary gland. Polyamines are low molecular weight aliphatic polycations, highly charged and ubiquitously present in all living cells.

Interest has been increasing during the last 30 years in the naturally abundant polyamines putrescine (diamine), spermidine (triamine) and spermine (tetramine), which were demonstrated to be involved in a large number of cellular processes.

Polyamines and cancer. Polyamine biosynthesis is up-regulated in actively growing cells, including cancer cells [10,18,19], therefore polyamine concentration as well as gene expression and activity of enzymes involved in polyamine biosynthesis, especially ODC, are higher in cancer tissues than in normal surrounding tissues [8,].Numerous reports have shown that both blood and urine Cited by: COVID Resources.

The polyamines spermine, spermidine, and putrescine are small organic molecules one or more of which are present in all living organisms.

Many natural products contain polyamine residues. Polyamines are synthesized by a highly regulated pathway from arginine or ornithine and also can be transported in and out of cells. Polyamines are degraded to a variety of compounds the functions of which. Hyperthermic shock induces the synthesis of a novel protein (P71) in many rat tissues in vivo.

In incubated rat tissue slices P71 is the major protein synthesized even though it is undetectable in. POLYAMINE SYNTHESIS. The only polyamines synthesized in mammalian cells are putrescine, spermidine and spermine.

4 Focal area of myofibrillar lysis. The characteristic band pattern is replaced by predominantly fine myofilaments.

Polyamine content is higher in rapidly growing tissues, and regenerative and growth-promoting hormonal stimuli enhance polyamine synthesis and content (15 – 17).Treatment of cultured cells with ODC inhibitors such as α-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO) led to a virtually complete loss of putrescine Cited by: The physiological concentrations of polyamines in plasma, serum and red blood cells were determined in male Wistar rats, using HPLC with fluorometric detection.
