Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the production of spermidine from putrescine and decarboxylated S-adenosylmethionine (dcSAM), which serves as an aminopropyl donor (By similarity).
Catalytic activity S-adenosyl 3-(methylthio)propylamine + putrescine = 5'-S-methyl-5'-thioadenosine + spermidine.
Pathway Amine and polyamine biosynthesis; spermidine biosynthesis; spermidine from putrescine; step 1/1.
case <OC:Proteobacteria>
Subunit Homodimer and homotetramer (By similarity).
end case
case <OC:Thermotogales>
Subunit Homotetramer (By similarity).
end case
case not <OC:Proteobacteria> and not <OC:Thermotogales>
Subunit Homodimer or homotetramer (By similarity).
end case
Similarity Belongs to the spermidine/spermine synthase family.
case not <FTTag:Act_site>
Caution Lacks the conserved Asp active site.
end case
