Encodes an arginase, likely to be involved in polyamine biosynthesis in pollen.
Encodes one of the two arginase in the genome. Gene expression is enhanced by methyl jasmonate treatment. It is involved in the defense response to B.cinerea.
ARG2: 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. Belongs to the arginase family.
