Description: The replacement of Arg by HomoArg may be a good avenue for the design of biologically active peptides with increased resistance to degradation by trypsin-like enzymes. L-Homoarginine (hArg) is an endogenous amino acid which has emerged as a novel biomarker for stroke and cardiovascular disease. Low circulating hArg levels are associated with increased mortality and vascular events, whereas recent data have revealed positive correlations between circulating hArg and metabolic vascular risk factors like obesity or blood glucose levels. L-Homoarginine (hArg) has recently emerged as a novel cardiovascular risk factor and to herald a poor prognosis in heart failure patients. The glucose-lowering effects of hArg may reflect a compensatory mechanism of blood glucose reduction by hArg upregulation in obese individuals, without directly influencing body weight or glucose tolerance.
