Metabolism

 Conditionally essentials
  1. Non-essential in unstressed animals and humans.

  4. Synthesized endogenously from citrulline in the kidneys and brain, although kidneys are the primary source of Arginine for peripheral protein synthesis
  5. Arginine, Lysine, and Ornithine share the same transport system in the intestines, kidneys and blood-brain barrier
 Functions
  1. Urea cycle intermediate
    1. Effective in protecting animals from ammonia toxication
    2. More effective in ammonia detoxification than Ornithine
  2. Proteogenic
  3. Glycogenic
  4. Growth Hormone
    1. IV administration to adult humans in doses of 30 g in 30 min (0.5 g/kg in children) causes a marked increase in human pituitary growth hormone secretion.
    2. Liver arginase activity (Arginine to Ornithine) is very high, releasing very little Arginine into the plasma.
  5. Insulin
    1. Arginine has a strongest insulinogenic effect equal to the infusion of all the essential amino acids.
  6. Wound healing
    1. increased thymus weight
    2. increased thymic lymphocyte cellularity
    3. increased thymocyte blastogenesis to stimuli
    4. increased allograft rejection
    5. increased peripheral blood lymphocyte blastogenesis to stimuli
    6. decreased tumor size
    7. in humans, decreased thymus involution
  7. Reproduction
    1. involved in spermatogenesis
    2. clinical results with Arginine increasing fertility range from negative to excellent
