General description

Putrescine is a naturally occurring polyamine[98], which is produced via breakdown of ornithine amino acid.[99][00]

Application

Putrescine may be used as a standard in determining the concentration of putrescine present in fish and fishery products using thin layer chromatography (TLC) coupled with densitometry and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).[98]
