Chemical Information
FooDB NameCitrulline
DescriptionCitrulline, also known as Cit or δ-ureidonorvaline, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as l-alpha-amino acids. These are alpha amino acids which have the L-configuration of the alpha-carbon atom. Citrulline is a drug which is used for nutritional supplementation, also for treating dietary shortage or imbalance. Citrulline is a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Citrulline exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, citrulline participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, citrulline can be biosynthesized from carbamoyl phosphate and ornithine; which is catalyzed by the enzyme ornithine carbamoyltransferase, mitochondrial. In addition, citrulline and L-aspartic acid can be converted into argininosuccinic acid through the action of the enzyme argininosuccinate synthase. In humans, citrulline is involved in the metabolic disorder called argininemia. Outside of the human body, Citrulline is found, on average, in the highest concentration within a few different foods, such as wheats, oats, and cucumbers and in a lower concentration in garden onions, saskatoon berries, and swiss chards. Citrulline has also been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as sweet bay, white mustards, fennels, hyacinth beans, and limes. This could make citrulline a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. The L-enantiomer of citrulline. Citrulline is a potentially toxic compound. Citrulline, with regard to humans, has been found to be associated with several diseases such as frontotemporal dementia, tooth decay, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase deficiency 1, cytosolic, and pancreatic cancer; citrulline has also been linked to the inborn metabolic disorder argininosuccinic aciduria.
