Spermine Un3259-Iii (8)
Spermine is a polyamine involved in cellular metabolism found in all eukaryotic cells. Formed from spermidine through the addition of aminopropyl group to spermidine by spermine synthase. It is found as a polycation at physiological pH.
Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.
DNA precipitation | Chromosome isolation | Crystallization of DNA
|Beilstein Registry Number||1750791|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Mixed NMDA glutamate receptor agonist/antagonist at the polyamine site. Neuroprotective effects have been observed at high concentrations (1 mM), while neurotoxicity is observed at lower concentrations. It enhances agonist effectiveness at the strychnine-insensitive glycine site. Plays a role in cellular proliferation and differentiation; inhibits neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS).|
