L-citrulline is an α-amino acid , white crystal or crystalline powder, sour taste, slightly soluble in water, soluble in alcohol and ether.It is a key intermediate in the urea cycle, the pathway by which mammals excrete ammonia.In the body, citrulline is produced as a byproduct of the enzymatic production of nitric oxide from the amino acid arginine, catalyzed by nitric oxide synthase. This is an essential reaction in the body because nitric oxide is an important vasodilator required for regulating blood pressure.
