Abstract

Polyamines play important roles in a range of cellular processes. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Mounce et al. (2016) link polyamine metabolism to the interferon response and demonstrate proviral effects for polyamines. The study points to the pathway as a potential novel pan-viral therapeutic target.
