Protein Information
Name ARG2
Function May play a role in the regulation of extra-urea cycle arginine metabolism and also in down-regulation of nitric oxide synthesis. Extrahepatic arginase functions to regulate L-arginine bioavailability to NO synthase. Since NO synthase is found in the penile corpus cavernosum smooth muscle, the clitoral corpus cavernosum and the vagina, arginase II plays a role in both male and female sexual arousal. It is therefore a potential target for the treatment of male and female sexual arousal disorders.
Cellular Location Mitochondrion.
Tissue Location Expressed most strongly in kidney and prostate, much less strongly in the brain, skeletal muscle, placenta, lung, mammary gland, macrophage, uterus, testis and gut, but apparently not in the liver, heart and pancreas

Arginase catalyzes the hydrolysis of arginine toornithine and urea. At least two isoforms of mammalian arginaseexists (types I and II) which differ in their tissue distribution,subcellular localization, immunologic crossreactivity andphysiologic function. The type II isoform encoded by this gene, islocated in the mitochondria and expressed in extra-hepatic tissues,especially kidney. The physiologic role of this isoform is poorlyunderstood; it is thought to play a role in nitric oxide andpolyamine metabolism. Transcript variants of the type II generesulting from the use of alternative polyadenylation sites havebeen described.
