General description

NG,NG-Dimethylarginine dihydrochloride is a methylated arginine derivative, which is produced by the liver. It is linked to liver cirrhosis, alcoholic hepatitis and acute liver failure (ALF).


NG,NG- Dimethylarginine dihydrochloride has been used:
  • to study its effects on cardiovascular activities in rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) in rats
  • as a standard for measuring L-arginine and dimethylarginines
  • to study its effects on hepatic deterioration
