Two cDNAs (<i>MdPAO1</i> and <i>MdPAO2a</i>) encoding polyamine oxidases (PAOs) were isolated from apple. Some notable features related to substrate specificity, catalytic activity and localization of MdPAO were predicted by comparison with those of other dicots- and monocots-PAOs. <i>MdPAO</i> was expressed in suspension cells at any time points tested during the culture period, but only in the young fruits among several organs analyzed.
