Medical Definition of N-acetylglutamate

1. The salt of N-acetylglutamic acid. An activator of carbamoyl phosphate synthetase I during urea synthesis; this amino acid causes a configurational change in the enzyme, increasing the activity of that enzyme. The inability to synthesise acetylglutamate results in a defect in urea biosynthesis. (05 Mar 2000)
