Spermidine strain engineering

Spermidine, a compound falling into the category of polyamines, plays an instrumental role in the complex world of biology. It contributes to various integral biological processes, such as cellular growth, gene expression regulation, and aging. Considering the influence spermidine has over these fundamental life processes, the exploration of its biosynthesis and production is not solely a scientific pursuit but a significant route to uncovering new possibilities in various sectors. Its potential applications span across biotechnology, medicine, agriculture, and more, with the promise of transforming our understanding of life and health.

Spermidine Biosynthesis pathway

Spermidine biosynthesis is a multistep process, intricate in nature, involving numerous enzymes. It all starts with the amino acid precursor, ornithine, which undergoes transformation into putrescine through a decarboxylation reaction. This is only the beginning of the journey as putrescine then experiences a series of transformations to eventually form spermidine. Each stage in this pathway is a testament to the marvel of biological engineering, demonstrating the intricate mechanisms that propel life at the molecular level.
