The arginase is responsible for catalyzing L-arginine into L-ornithine and urea, and it is one of the key enzymes of polyamine cycle and urea cycle. In this paper, we reviewed the function analysis and the roles of plant arginase in stress resistance. It is clearly that arginase plays an important role in the response of adversity stress, but the mechanism of arginase gene regulating the plant tolerance is still need to research.
