Abstract: In acute liver failure (ALF), the hyperdynamic circulation is believed to be the result of overproduction of nitric oxide (NO) in the splanchnic circulation. However, it has been suggested that arginine concentrations (the substrate for NO) are believed to be decreased, limiting substrate availability for NO production. To characterize the metabolic fate of arginine in early-phase ALF, we systematically assessed its interorgan transport and metabolism and measured the endogenous NO synthase inhibitor asymmetr…
