MetaCyc Enzyme: arginase

Gene: arginase Accession Number: AT4G08900 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: AT408900, AT4G08900

Species: Arabidopsis thaliana col

Summary:
A Arabidopsis thaliana cDNA clone was recovered by complementation of an arginase deficient yeast mutant. The isolates of the complemented mutant produced urea in the presence of L-arginine, indicating that the ariginase was present. This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of arginine to ornithine and it occurs as a single copy in the Arabidopsis thaliana genome [Krumpelman95].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 37.3 kD (from nucleotide sequence), 37.3 kD (experimental) [Krumpelman95 ]

pI: 6.52 [Krumpelman95]
