Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 250)

Abstract

Although the di- and polyamine oxidases of plants are apparently limited in their distribution, in some species they are remarkably active. Earlier work on these enzymes has been summarized by Smith (1985a), Morgan (1985), Rinaldi et al., (1986), and Mondovi and Avigliano (1987).

Keywords
