Arginase 1 and arginase 2 catalyze the hydrolysis of arginine to ornithine and urea. The localization of these enzymes was studied in various tissues in Sprague-Dawley rats by immunohistochemistry and Western blotting. Western blot analysis showed that both arginase 1 and 2 were differentially expressed in the various organs examined. Arginase 1 was expressed at high levels in the liver, at moderate levels in the pancreas, and at low levels in the cerebrum, cerebellum, spinal cord, stomach… CONTINUE READING
