Compounds of polyamines, considering to be essential for life, are found in prokaryotes

and eukaryotes. Although their exact functions have not yet been identified, it is clear that the

polyamines play important specific roles in a number of cellular processes such as replication

and translation, embryonic development, cell cycle, programmed cell death and cancer. In

addition, the metabolic pathway of these compounds is lighten in recent years, the relationship

between polyamines and hormones still remains unclear. In this study, we suggest that

cytokinin and auxin, a plant growth hormone and regulating cell cycle progression, could be

correlated with polyamines.
