This chapter will focus on polyamine biosynthesis, oxidation, conjugation processes, mainly to hydroxycinnamic acids, and compartmentation of enzymes, substrates and products, giving an overview about recent results especially in higher plants. New research advances regarding the cloning of the main cDNA encoding for polyamine biosynthetic and oxidative enzymes, will be taken into consideration.
