BEC hydrochloride


Slow-binding pH-dependent inhibitior of human Arginase I and II (Kd value 270 nM and 220 nM for Arginase I and II, respectively. Ki values 310 nM and 30 nM at pH 7.5 and pH 9.5, respectively for Arginase II). Valuable reagent to probe the physiological relationship between arginase and nitric oxide (NO) synthase in regulating the NO-dependent smooth muscle relaxation in human penile corpus cavernosum tissue.
BEC Does not inhibit NO synthase, and effectively prevented ACh tolerance in aortic and mesenteric artery preparations.
