Abstract

The arginase activity and ornithine level were determined in tissue obtained from patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSLC). The arginase activity and ornithine level in tumor tissues were 1.89 +/- 1.28 U/mg protein and 42.32 +/- 25.82 nmol/mg protein, respectively versus 0.67 +/- 0.19 U/mg protein and 10.12 +/- 3.69 nmol/mg protein for normal tissues (p < 0.01).
