U-VUE Biomarker Datasheet - Arginase-1
|Alternative Name:||Liver-type arginase, ARG1|
|Main cell types:||Liver cells, myeloid cells|
|Positive control:||Tonsil, Liver|
Arginase-1 is one of three enzymes that metabolise arginine: ARG1, ARG2, and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). Arginase-1 induces the breakdown of L-arginine. T cell receptors rely on L-arginine for signaling and cell proliferation. In the context of pro-tumor myeloid cells, Arginase-1 may suppress immune cell signaling and potentially suppress cytotoxic T cell activity.
