Species: Bacillus subtilis

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 32.154 kD (from nucleotide sequence) [Bairoch93a ]

Gene-Reaction Schematic: ?

Gene-Reaction Schematic


Enzymatic reaction of: arginase

Synonyms: arginine amidinase, canavanase, L-arginine amidinohydrolase

EC Number: 3.5.3.1

L-arginine + H2O <=> urea + L-ornithine

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.

This reaction is reversible.

In Pathways: L-arginine degradation I (arginase pathway)

Summary:
Arginase catalyzes the first reaction in the arginine catabolic pathway also known as the arginase pathway. [BSUB93, Gardan97, Gardan95]

Cofactors or Prosthetic Groups: Mn2+ [Comment 1]

Inhibitors (Competitive): L-ornithine [BSUB93]

Primary Physiological Regulators of Enzyme Activity: L-ornithine
