Medical Definition of Ornithine transcarbamoylase

1. An enzyme of the transferase class that catalyses the reaction of carbamoyl phosphate and l-ornithine to yield orthophosphate and l-citrulline. The enzyme occurs in the liver. The reaction is a part of the urea cycle. Genetic deficiency of the enzyme, an x-linked trait, impairs urea formation and produces hyperammonaemia. Chemical name: Carbamoyl-phosphate:L-ornithine carbamoyltransferase Registry number: EC 2.1.3.3 (12 Dec 1998)
