Citrulline Aptamer Now Available from Base Pair

Base Pair has released a new aptamer to L-Citrulline, a small, non-essential amino acid. Based on scientific reports that citrulline promotes muscle protein synthesis and improves blood flow, it has become a popular nutritional supplement. Because citrulline is produced in the small intestine, low citrulline levels are an indication of intestinal failure. Citrulline is metabolized […]
