Namearginine biosynthesis from glutatmate via N-acetylglutamate
DescriptionArginine is made from Glutamate by way of ornithine. In one pathway, glutamate is acetylated by an amino acid acetyltransferase. Next it is acted on by N-acetylglutamate kinase, N-acetylglutamate kinase, N-acetylglutamylphosphate reductase, acetylornithine transaminase, and acetylornithine deacetylase to become L-ornithine. Ornithine is converted to arginine in three steps in the urea cycle. An alternative pathway from glutamate is possible, in which glutamate is first converted to glutamate 5-semialdehyde as during proline biosythesis, then immediately to ornithine by ornithine oxo-acid transaminase.
