N-Acetylglutamate synthetase deficiency responding to carbamylglutamate

Abstract

N-Acetylglutamate synthetase (NAGS, EC 2.3.1.1) deÐciency (McKusick 237310) catalyses the synthesis of N-acetylglutamate (NAG), an obligatory activator of carbamyl phosphate synthetase, the Ðrst step in the urea cycle.
