Citrulline (CIT) is an amino acid involved in arginine (ARG) metabolism. It is named after the watermelon, Citrullis Vulgaris,
from which it was first discovered. Citrulline binds the hydroxyl
radical, protecting DNA and metabolic enzymes from oxidation. It is
involved in nitrogen balance and muscle homeostasis. Citrulline can
stimulate muscle protein synthesis and has become a popular nutritional
supplement. Circulating citrulline is elevated in renal failure and
decreased in intestinal failure (1).
