The polyamines putrescine, spermine, and spermidine are ubiquitous polycationic mediators of cell growth and differentiation. SRM synthase is one of four enzymes in the polyamine-biosynthetic pathway and carries out the final step of spermidine biosynthesis. This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of putrescine to spermidine using decarboxylated S-adenosylmethionine as the cofactor.
