ⓘ Dimethylargininase

In the field of enzymology, a dimethylargininase, also known as a dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase, is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction:

N-omega,N-omega-methyl-L-arginine + H 2 O ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } dimethylamine + L-citrulline

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme N-omega, N-omega-methyl-L-arginine and H2O, whereas its two products dimethylamine and L-citrulline.
