Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the irreversible transfer of a propylamine group from the amino donor S-adenosylmethioninamine (decarboxy-AdoMet) to putrescine (1,4-diaminobutane) to yield spermidine (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 <Feature:Transmembrane>1>
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein (By similarity).
else case <Feature:Transmembrane==1>
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein (By similarity).
Subcellular location Cytoplasm (By similarity).
end case
Subunit Homodimer or homotetramer (By similarity).
Similarity Belongs to the spermidine/spermine synthase family.
case not <FTTag:Act_site>
Caution Lacks the conserved Asp active site.
end case
