N-a·ce·tyl·glu·ta·mate (NAG),

(a-sĕ'til-glū'tă-māt),
The salt of N-acetylglutamic acid. An activator of carbamoyl phosphate synthetase I during urea synthesis; this amino acid causes a configurational change in the enzyme, thus increasing its activity. The inability to synthesize N-acetylglutamate results in a defect in urea biosynthesis.

N-acetylglutamate

compound produced from acetyl CoA and glutamate that provides the regulator stimulus to the activity of carbamoyl synthetase II of the urea cycle.
