putrescine

A dibasic amine associated with putrifying tissue. Associates strongly with DNA. Has been suggested as a growth factor for mammalian cells in culture. Metabolic precursor of the polyamines spermine and spermidine.

Putrescine

==History== Putrescine and cadaverine were first described in 1885 by the Berlin physician Ludwig Brieger (1849–1919). ==Production== Putrescine is produced on an industrial scale by hydrogenation of succinonitrile, which is produced by addition of hydrogen cyanide to acrylonitrile. Putrescine is reacted with adipic acid to yield the polyamide N...

putrescine

Unpleasant smelling biogenic amine from the amino acid Ornithine. It arises (as well as cadaverine ) at the decay of proteins (lat. putrescere = decompose, rot). In food chemistry, the content gives an indication of the freshness of meat. The substance promotes the growth of plant shoots. Putrescin can also occur in wine, and this often together wi...
