Abstract

The naturally occurring polyamines are found in all living cells, where they fulfil a number of critical functions in relation to cell growth. The quest to identify these functions has been the subject of five independent colloquia hosted by the Biochemical Society and today still occupies several hundred scientists across Europe, the U.S.A. and Japan.
