AGMAT Belongs to the arginase family. Agmatinase subfamily. Highly expressed in liver and kidney. Also found in skeletal muscle, fetal liver, brain, testis, skin and the gastrointestinal tract. Within brain, expression is higher in the cerebral cortex with lower levels in the medulla and spinal cord. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
