Possible Interaction: Citrulline and Asymmetric Dimethylarginine

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In cultured airway epithelial cells, L-citrulline , a precursor of L-arginine recycling and NO formation, has been shown to prevent asymmetric di-methyl arginine (ADMA)-mediated NO synthase (NOS2) uncoupling, restoring NO and reducing oxidative stress.

However, l-citrulline reduced plasma ADMA level and increased renal level of NO in DEX + CIT group.

Plasma citrulline, arginine and the ratio of arginine/asymmetric dimethylarginine ( ADMA), an endogenous inhibitor of NO synthase (arginine/ADMA ratio) were significantly increased in the L-citrulline group compared with the placebo group (p<0.05, p<0.01, p<0.05, respectively).

L-citrulline also markedly restored the NO production, and cGMP level which was reduced by ADMA.
The increased O2.− production by ADMA was also inhibited by L-citrulline.

In addition, citrulline positively correlated with ADMA (p = 0.02) levels, possibly as result of other sources of citrulline biosynthetic pathways.
