MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] 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. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele show postnatal lethality, hyperammonemia, argininemia, altered plasma levels of other amino acids, enlarged pale livers, and abnormal hepatocytes. Mice homozygous for a different null allele show postnatal lethality, andincreased macrophage nitric oxide production. [provided by MGI curators]
