Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0015847 - putrescine transport

Definition: The directed movement of putrescine into, out of or within a cell, or between cells, by means of some agent such as a transporter or pore. Putrescine is 1,4-diaminobutane, the polyamine formed by decarboxylation of ornithine and the metabolic precursor of spermidine and spermine.
