L(+)-Citrulline, white powder

Citrulline (an organic compound) is an α-amino acid. It is prepared from arginine with a concomittant release of nitric oxide. In recent studies, citrulline has been found to relax blood vessels. Circulating citrulline concentration is, in humans, a biomarker of intestinal functionality.

Citrulline is an essential constituent of antigenic determinants recognized by rheumatoid arthritis -speciï¬c autoantibodies. It has also found its application in Immunohistochemistry and ELISA.

Intermediate in the production of nitric oxide from L-arginine by NO synthetase.
