They are derived from endocrine stem cells of the amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation (APUD) system, and can potentially cause clinical syndromes due to hypersecretion of biogenic amines and polypeptides.
In Escherichia coli and some other coliforms, lysine decarboxylase is encoded by cadA which participates in the decarboxylation of lysine and synthesis of cadaverine [30].
The dominant fragment at m/z 354 is generated by a loss of water from the parent; subsequent decarboxylation leads to m/z 310.
Polyols with lower homologues of acid could not be made since the high temperatures required resulted in decarboxylation.

My idea was based on how some biological systems achieve decarboxylation, which means the loss of carbon dioxide.

6,184,421 B1: Rhodia Chimie researchers have patented a process for preparing a 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde and its derivatives by oxidizing a carboxy group, carrying out a decarboxylation operation to produce the 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde and a phenol and recycling the phenol.

As decomposition commences, at temperatures lower than 360[degrees]C, the main degradation reactions for PLLA polyesters are a random nonradical backbiting ester interchange reaction involving OH chain ends, producing mostly cyclic rather than linear oligomers, monomers, acetaldehyde, and carbon dioxide are obtained by decarboxylation of terminal carboxyl groups in the chains [37, 38].
