|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||34735 Da|
|Antigen Region||293-322 aa|
|Other Names||Arginase-1, Liver-type arginase, Type I arginase, ARG1|
|Target/Specificity||This ARG1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 293-322 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ARG1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ARG1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cytoplasmic granule. Note=Localized in azurophil granules of neutrophils (PubMed:15546957)|
|Tissue Location||Within the immune system initially reported to be selectively expressed in granulocytes (polymorphonuclear leukocytes [PMNs]) (PubMed:15546957). Also detected in macrophages mycobacterial granulomas (PubMed:23749634). Expressed in group2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) during lung disease (PubMed:27043409).|

Arginase catalyzes the hydrolysis of arginine to ornithine and urea. At least two isoforms of mammalian arginase exist (types I and II) which differ in their tissue distribution, subcellular localization, immunologic crossreactivity and physiologic function. The type I isoform encoded by this gene, is a cytosolic enzyme and expressed predominantly in the liver as a component of the urea cycle. Inherited deficiency of this enzyme results in argininemia, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hyperammonemia.
