Polyamine metabolism and autophagy in plants

Submitted by Kateřina Eliášová on Thu, 10/13/2022 - 11:16

Polyamines putrescine (Put), spermidine (Spd), and spermine (Spm) are ubiquitous, small aliphatic polycations found in eukaryotic organisms, which regulate vital developmental and physiological events. They play an important role in diverse plant growth and developmental processes and adaptation to environmental stresses. Among other functions, spermidine stimulates the process of autophagy across species including yeast, animals, and even humans.
