Polyamines (putrescine (PUT), spermidine (SPD), and spermine (SPM)) are ubiquitous molecules that are involved in a number of important cellular processes. Lack of their function or metabolism can lead to various diseases such as neurological disease, cancer and parasitic infection. A number of validated drug targets have been identified,.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
