Product Information of L-arginine (CAS 74-79-3)

L-Arginine is a chemical substance, the molecular formula is C6H14N4O2. After recrystallization, it loses crystal water at 105 °C, and its water solubility is strongly alkaline, which can absorb carbon dioxide from the air. Soluble in water (15%, 21 °C ), insoluble in ether, slightly soluble in ethanol.

L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid for adults, but the rate of formation in the body is slow, and L-Arginine is an essential amino acid for infants and young children, it has a certain detoxification effect. L-Arginine (CAS 74-79-3) exists in fish sperm protein, and is also a basic component of all kinds of proteins. So the existence of L-Arginine is very extensive.

L-Arginine Uses and Applications

  1. L-Arginine can be used for biochemical research, various types of hepatic coma and viral hepatic glutamic-pyruvic transaminase abnormalities.
  2. L-Arginine is used as a pharmaceutical raw material and a food additive.
  3. Nutritional supplements and flavoring agents. A special flavor substance can be obtained by heating with sugar (amino carbonyl reaction). It is a food spice that is allowed to use. L-Arginine is an important component of amino acid infusion and comprehensive amino acid preparation.
  4. Arginine is an essential amino acid for the growth and development of infants. It is an intermediate metabolite of ornithine cycle, which can promote ammonia conversion to urea, thereby reducing blood ammonia content. It is also a major component of sperm protein, which promotes spermatogenesis and provides energy for sperm motility. In addition, intravenous injection of arginine can stimulate the release of growth hormone from pituitary gland and can be used for pituitary function test.
