Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is hepatocellular carcinoma.
Arginase-1 (ARG1) catalyzes the hydrolysis of L-arginine into ornithine and urea, a critical step for the urea cycle. Defects in ARG1 are the cause of argininemia, an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by hyperammonemia. There are several isoforms of mammalian arginase. The type I isoform, is a cytosolic enzyme and expressed predominantly in the liver as a component of the urea cycle. Hepatocellular carcinoma usually shows higher protein expression of ARG1 than normal liver cells.
