Information on the regulation of urea synthesis in vivo was obtained by examining the relationship between ureagenesis in vivo, citrulline synthesis in vitro, and two factors currently hypothesized to exert short-term regulation of this pathway: the liver mitochondrial content of N-acetylglutamate (NAG) and substrate availability. Rats meal-fed for 4 h every day (4-20 schedule) or for 8 h every other day (8-40 schedule) were used. (1) The citrulline-synthesizing capacity of mitochondria from… CONTINUE READING
