l-Citrulline is converted in vitro by l-amino acid oxidase to the analogous α-ketoacid. Mass-spectrometer analysis revealed that the compound exists in a cyclic form with a molecular weight of 156. The proposed name of the previously undescribed cyclic derivative of citrulline is 4, 5-dihydroformamido-2-pyrrole carboxylic acid.
