Biochem/physiol Actions

Intermediate in the production of nitric oxide from L-arginine by NO synthetase.
L-Citrulline, when orally administered is found to ameliorate the condition of sickle cell disease in humans. L-citrulline can be a replacement for L-arginine administration in case of defective NO synthetase. L-Citrulline supplementation is found to fulfill the purpose of NO-dependent signaling.
