Ornithine Transcarbamylase: Basic Science and Clinical Considerations,written by a leading expert on OTC, for the first time assembles and analyzes more than 40 years of basic science and clinical research. It will be the definitive resource on the topic for pediatricians, geneticists, and internists who care for patients with OTC deficiency, as well as for basic scientists and genetic researchers who study the urea cycle in mammals and the arginine biosynthetic pathway in bacteria and fungi.
