The conversion of citrulline to arginine in kidney


Glycocyamine is formed in the kidney by the transfer of the amidine group of arginine to the nitrogen atom of glycine. In the study of this reaction it was observed that glycocyamine was also formed from citrulline and glycine. No other donor or precursor of the amidine group was found (1).
