Description

L-ornithine is an amino acid that is produced by the removal of urea from the amino acid arginine. In the body, L-ornithine plays an important role as a hepatoprotective agent, as well as in the excretion of nitrogen. It is also a precursor molecule for the amino acids arginine and citrulline.

Applications

L-orthinine has been used in several different types of biomedical studies. Research into potential clinical applications has included clinical trials of L-orthinine as a therapeutic agent for acute liver failure. Rat studies have also been conducted into the effects of L-orthinine on the phosphorylation of mTORC1 targets in the liver. The amino acid has also been used in nutritional supplementation studies, where it has been found to reduce physical fatigue by regulating lipid metabolism.

USE
L-Ornithine HCl is 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 amino acids decarboxylation test.
Handling
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Use personal protective equipment as required. Use with local exhaust ventilation. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Corrosive hazard. Wear protective gloves/clothing and eye/face protection. Thermal decomposition can lead to release of toxic/corrosive gases and vapors.
