Citrulline (CIT) is an amino acid involved in arginine (ARG) metabolism. It is named after the watermelon, Citrullis Vulgaris, from which it was first discovered. Citrulline binds the hydroxyl radical, protecting DNA and metabolic enzymes from oxidation. It is involved in nitrogen balance and muscle homeostasis. Citrulline can stimulate muscle protein synthesis and has become a popular nutritional supplement. Circulating citrulline is elevated in renal failure and decreased in intestinal failure (1).

This aptamer was selected by scientists at Base Pair Biotechnologies using proprietary methods and L-Citrulline [Sigma, Cat# C7629] as a target.

Please note that aptamers have much lower molecular weights than antibodies. Thus, there are typically five to fifteen times as many moles or molecules of aptamers present in a solution containing an equal mass. For example, 100 micrograms of an aptamer is equivalent to 0.5 to 1.5 mg of antibody, depending on the particular aptamer.
