Applications

Binds to the polyamine modulatory site of NMDA Spermidine is used in electroporation during transferring the DNA into the cell under the electrical impulse. It is also used for purification of DNA-binding proteins. It combines with calcium chloride and utilized for the precipitation of DNA onto microprojectiles for bombardment with a gene gun. It plays an important role to reduce the amount of aging in yeast, flies, worms, and human immune cells by inducing autophagy. It serves as a precursor of spermine and essential for both normal and neoplastic tissue growth.

Notes

Hygroscopic. Incompatible with acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides and oxidizing agents.
