Biological Activity: Specific activity as determined by the production of urea during the hydrolysis of arginine is greater than 30000 pmol/min/µg.
MW: 35.6 kDa
Purity: Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin: Less than 1.0 EU/µg as determined by LAL method.
Relevance: ARG1 is a member of the ureohydrolase family of enzymes. ARG1 can catalyze the hydrolysis of arginine to ornithine and urea. In the urea cycle, ARG1 catalyzes the fifth and final step, a series of biochemical reactions in mammals during which the body disposes of harmful ammonia. ARG1 is a cytosolic enzyme and expressed widely in the liver as part of the urea cycle, while it is also expressed in cells and tissues that lack a complete urea cycle, including lung. Inherited deficiency of this ARG1 causes argininemia, which is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hyperammonemia.
Notes: Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4℃ for up to one week.
Function: Key element of the urea cycle converting L-arginine to urea and L-ornithine, which is further metabolized into metabolites proline and polyamides that drive collagen synthesis and bioenergetic pathways critical for cell proliferation, respectively; the urea cycle takes place primarily in the liver and, to a lesser extent, in the kidneys.
Involvement in disease: Argininemia (ARGIN)
Subcellular Location: Cytoplasm, Cytoplasmic granule
