Problem Set 19A-Arginine




1. Starting with hydrolysis of arginine, construct a temporary map showing all the possible catabolic reactions of arginine.

2. What predictions can you make?

3. Look for the enzymes that catalyze the reactions you have written and determine if they have been found in animal cells. Two of the enzymes present mechanistic and/or biochemical problems. Discuss these problems .

4. Construct a final map.
