- Structural Analysis of DNA Interactions with Biogenic Polyamines and Cobalt(III)hexamine Studied by Fourier Transform Infrared and Capillary Electrophoresis; Biogenic polyamines, such as putrescine and spermidine are involved in numerous diverse biological processes. Due to their binding to DNA and RNA they play an important role in nucleic acid function and cause DNA condensation and aggregation inducing DNA conformational changes.
