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 ARG1 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 (ARGIN), an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hyperammonemia (Carvalho et al. 2012). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for ARG1 (provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011).
