Base Catalog Number: 100277
Alternate Names: L-arginine amidinase; L-arginine amidino-hydrolase
Biochemical Physiological Actions : L-Arginase is the major degradative enzyme for arginine; converts arginine to ornithine; deficiency is associated with spasticity and motor dysfunction.
CAS : # 9000-96-8
Components : The enzyme does not split into subunits; it binds 4 atoms of Mn2+ which are essential to its activity as well as stability and has a hexose content of 3-5%.
EC No : 232-570-3
Extinction Coefficient : E1%278nm = 9.6 (Lit.)
Format : Powder
Formulation Details : The amino acid content has been reported by Greenberg. The enzyme does not split into subunits; it binds 4 atoms of Mn2+ which are essential to its activity as well as stability and has a hexose content of 3-5%.
MDL No : MFCD00081368
PPE : Eyeshields, Gloves, respirator filter
Source : Bovine Liver
Specific Activity : ~20 u/mg
Specificity : Arginase activity requires the free guanidino group and the free carboxyl group of arginine.
Unit Definition : One unit will convert 1.0 µmole of L-arginine to ornithine and urea per minute at pH 9.5 and 37 °C.
