About this item

This book describes the contribution and potential use of fungi as models for the study of polyamines, in comparison to other organisms, examining the individual function of each polyamine; why they have high levels of regulation, including transport and back conversion; the role of spermine; and the basic mechanisms of function in all the roles they have in cells, including differentiation. It addresses the chemistry and cellular localization of polyamines; mechanisms of biosynthesis, their interconversion, and degradation in fungi, in comparison with animal and plant cells; polyamine distribution in the fungal kingdom as compared to other eukaryotic organisms; regulatory mechanisms of polyamine metabolism at the transcriptional, translational, and posttranslational levels in fungi and other organisms; general functions of polyamines, their possible modes of action, and their role in cell differentiation and morphogenesis in fungi and other organisms; and polyamine metabolism as a target for disease.
