Asymmetric N G,N G-dimethylarginine (ADMA) and symmetric N G,N'G-dimethylarginine (SDMA) are basic endogenous amino acids with a guanidino group. Our renal distribution study of dimethylarginines clearly indicates that, in mouse and rat, ADMA and SDMA levels are most abundant as protein-incorporated compounds (95%). ADMA represents almost 90% of this protein-incorporated dimethylarginine amount. The four zones studied (cortex, outer and inner stripe of outer medulla, inner medulla) contain more… CONTINUE READING
