Putrescine attacks s-adenosyl methionine and converts it to
spermidine. Spermidine, in turn, attacks another s-adenosyl methionine
and converts it to spermine. Putrescine is synthesized in small
quantities by healthy living cells by the action of ornithine
decarboxylase. The polyamines, of which putrescine is one of the
simplest, appear to be growth factors necessary for cell division.
