26537638 circulating Arginase 2 concentrations increase in clinical erectile dysfunction (ED) and are associated with increased risk for ED
26116899 HIV-1 Vpr downregulates the expression of ARG2 in human monocyte-derived dendritic cells
26054597 High arginase II expression correlates with poor survival for patients with neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma suppresses T-cell proliferation via arginase II expression and activity.
25635535 Arg-II, p38, and S6K1 form a positive circuit which regulates endothelial senescence and cardiovascular aging.
25484082 arginase 2 impairs endothelial autophagy independently of the L-arginine ureahydrolase activity through activation of RPS6KB1 and inhibition of PRKAA, which is implicated in atherogenesis
25205225 Arg1 expression is decreased, and Arg2 expression is increased in the newborn congenital obstructive nephropathy and in the mouse model.
25034973 high fat diet enhanced arginase-II expression/activity and p38mapk activity, which was associated with eNOS-uncoupling as revealed by decreased nitric oxide
24903103 OxLDL triggers retrograde translocation of arginase2 in aortic endothelial cells via ROCK and mitochondrial processing peptidase.
24879052 study identified arginase II as a new target of miR-17-5p in human pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (hPASMC), with miR-17-5p involved in the hypoxic induction of arginase II in hPASMC; also found evidence supporting a feedback loop between arginase II and miR-17-5p, such that arginase II regulates miR-17-5p expression in hPASMC
24860943 These results demonstrate that S6K1 and arginase-II form a positive circuit mediating the detrimental effects of chronic L-arginine supplementation on endothelial cells.
