Application

L-Ornithine monohydrochloride has been used to study the blocking effect of L-ornithine on the transport system that carries L-arginine for the overproduction of nitric oxide during lipopolysaccharide induced endotoxemia in rat model. It has also been used in decarboxylation test of amino acids.

Biochem/physiol Actions

L-Ornithine is a product of arginase degradation and plays an important role in ammonia metabolism via the urea cycle. In mammals, ornithine serves as a precursor for polyamines and proline biosynthesis. Spermine synthesized from ornithine, is an abundant polyamine observed in tumors such as breast carcinomas. Administration of L-ornithine is known to improve subjective index of sleep quality. L-ornithine reduces the cortisol/DHEA-S (dehydroepiandrosterone) ratio, that is associated with stress. In mice, L-ornithine is found to affect the levels of plasma growth hormone, corticosterone and melatonin levels in mice.

Proline-rich antimicrobial peptides (PrAMPs) from insects and mammals have recently been evaluated for their pharmaceutical potential in treating systemic bacterial infections. Besides the native peptides, several shortened, modified, or even artificial sequences were highly effective in different murine infection models.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
