  • 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.
  • Tissue specificity
    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.
  • Pathway
    Nitrogen metabolism; urea cycle; L-ornithine and urea from L-arginine: step 1/1.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the arginase family.
  • Cellular localization
    Mitochondrion.
  • Information by UniProt
