Description: Enables arginase activity; identical protein binding activity; and manganese ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including arginine catabolic process to ornithine; cellular response to dexamethasone stimulus; and cellular response to glucagon stimulus. Located in extracellular space; mitochondrial outer membrane; and neuronal cell body. Used to study acute necrotizing pancreatitis and hypertension. Biomarker of several diseases, including acute kidney failure; cholestasis; silicosis; ureteral obstruction; and uveitis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma; hepatocellular carcinoma; and hyperargininemia. Orthologous to human ARG1 (arginase 1); PARTICIPATES IN urea cycle pathway; AGAT deficiency pathway; arginine and proline metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-colchicine; 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane; 1-bromopropane.
