Abstract

A method has been devised for the testing of any substance as an intermediate in a reaction sequence. Using this technique, thirty-three substances have been tested as precursors of the urea carbon atom. Of the compounds tested, only citrulline and arginine were precursors.

Garbamyl L-glutamic acid was shown not to be a donor of the urea carbon, although it does have some function in urea synthesis.
