l-Arginase from rat kidney was partially purified and some properties were compared with those of l-arginase of rat liver. The kidney enzyme was firmly bound to the mitochondrial fraction and after solubilization required arginine or an unknown factor in tissue extracts for stabilization after dialysis. The two enzymes differed also in stability with respect to acetone treatment, heating or freezing. In further contrast with liver arginase, arginase from kidney was not adsorbed to CM-cellulose… CONTINUE READING
