Birds lack carbamyl phosphate synthetase, one of the urea cycle enzymes necessary for the synthesis of citrulline from ornithine in the liver and kidney (Tamir and Ratner, 1963).
MS/MS has proven to be ineffective in reliably identifying deficiencies in the urea-cycle enzymes ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) and carbamyl phosphate synthetase (CPSI) through the quantitation of citrulline, though is considerably more useful when detecting elevations in this analyte in newborns with a deficiency in argininosuccinic acid synthetase (ASAS) or argininosuccinic acid lyase (ASAL).
3,5,3'-Triiodothyronine-induced carbamyl phosphate synthetase gene expression is stabilized in the liver of Rana catesbeiana tadpoles during heat shock.
The hyperammonemia observed in methylmalonic acidemia is thought to arise because accumulated propionyl CoA interferes with formation of N-acetylglutamate, an obligatory activator of carbamyl phosphate synthase, the initial step in urea synthesis (4).
We are in the process of analyzing various safe, natural plant nutriceutical that may recruit stem cells including low level (S)-nicotine Angiogenix(TM), lobeline, carbamyl, natural choline esterase inhibitors, and others.
