Rapidly regenerating tissues need sufficient polyamine synthesis. Since the hair follicle (HF) is a highly proliferative mini-organ, polyamines may also be important for normal hair growth. However, the role of polyamines inhuman HF biology and their effect on HF epithelial stem cells in situ remains largely unknown.
