Arginine is a complex amino acid that is often found at the catalytic (active) site in proteins and enzymes due to its amine-containing side chain. Arginine plays an important role in cell division, the healing of wounds, stimulation of protein synthesis, immune function, and the release of hormones. Arginine is required for the generation of urea, which is necessary for the removal of toxic ammonia from the body and is also required for the synthesis of creatine, which degrades to creatinine, a waste product that is cleared from the body by the kidney.

Units description
Micromole per liter µmol/L = mcmol/L = umol/L = µM/L = mcM/L = uM/L = micromol/L
Milligram per liter mg/L = millig/L = milligram/L = mg/liter
Milligram per deciliter mg/dL = millig/dL = milligram/dL
Milligram per 100 milliliters mg/100mL = millig/100mL = milligram/100mL
Milligram percent mg% = millig% = milligram%
Microgram per milliliter µg/mL = mcg/mL = ug/mL= microg/mL = microgram/mL
