Synonyms
alt. id: GO:0006594, GO:0006871
ornithine cycle, urea biosynthesis, urea biosynthetic process
Definition
The sequence of reactions by which arginine is synthesized from ornithine, then cleaved to yield urea and regenerate ornithine. The overall reaction equation is NH3 + CO2 + aspartate + 3 ATP + 2 H2O = urea + fumarate + 2 ADP + 2 phosphate + AMP + diphosphate. Source: ISBN:0198506732, GOC:pde, GOC:vw
