Comments P.6664 left column bottom paragraph: "Putrescine and spermidine are generally found at high concentrations in Gram-negative bacteria such as E. coli, where spermine is absent. Studies in E. coli reported concentrations of ∼20–30 mM for putrescine and ∼6–7 mM for spermidine (primary source)."
