What is Ornithine?

Ornithine is a non-proteinogenic amino acid that holds pivotal significance in the intricate landscape of biological processes. It plays a crucial role in the urea cycle, a metabolic pathway responsible for detoxifying ammonia in the body. Ornithine is a key player in the synthesis of proteins and contributes to the production of polyamines, influencing various physiological functions.

Ornithine metabolism is a complex network of biochemical reactions in which ornithine undergoes transformations critical to maintaining metabolic balance. Primarily associated with the urea cycle, ornithine participates in reactions regulating ammonia levels, supporting collagen synthesis, and contributing to the biosynthesis of other amino acids. Understanding these metabolic pathways is fundamental to unraveling the multifaceted functions of ornithine.
