• Mammals including humans, most adult amphibians living on land and many
marine fish and turtles, which face the problem of conserving water in their
hypertonic environment, are ureotelic (excrete urea). Urea is produced in liver by

Llreotelic Si/stem In ureotelic amphibians, turtles, mammals, and a few
invertebrates, ammonia generated intramitochondrially is converted to urea for
excretion. In mammals, urea has a special role in the kidney's ability to form a
Nitrogen Metabolism and Excretion
Birds and reptiles primarily excrete uric acid whereas mammals are ureotelic,
urea being the end product of protein metabolism. The realization that
ammonotelism is incompatible with a terrestrial existence led to the recognition of

desert) species ureotelic and only a few arboreal species from seasonally arid ...

Arginase (EC 126.96.36.199): a highly active and specific liver enzyme which catalyses a
reaction in the urea cycle (L-arginine + H2O - > L-ornithine + urea) in ureotelic

Such species are said to be, respectively, ureotelic and uricotelic. There are no
clear phyletic distinctions as to which groups of vertebrates utilize a particular
process for nitrogen excretion nor are they mutually exclusive. Ammonotelic fish ...
Comparative Animal Biochemistry
The predominant end products of amino acid degradation are ammonia (
ammonio- telic), urea (ureotelic) and uric acid (uricotelic). The pathway preferred
