Nameputrescine biosynthesis
DescriptionThe polyamine putrescine is both the precursor of the essential growth factor spermidine as well as an intermediate for the degradation of arginine and ornithine (and those compounds which may be converted to ornithine). Putrescine may be generated from glutamate and arginine via a number of pathways.
