Spermidine, molecular biology reagent, ~99%, 1 g
Spermidine is biogenic polyamine formed from putrescine, a precursor of spermine. It was first detected in human sperm, but occurs widely in nature. It is essential in both normal and neoplastic tissue growth. Spermidine is a biogenic polyamine formed from putrescine. It is essential in both normal and neoplastic tissue growth.
