What is urea and how is it formed?

Previous INCORRECT answer: "Urea is a form of protein produced by the kidneys." There are 2 things wrong with this statement. #1 - Not a protein. #2 - Not produced by kidneys Urea is not a protein at all. It's a nitrogenous waste compound produced in the liver. Ammonia is a toxic compound produced during protein-catabolism. The body gets rid of this toxin by coupling it with CO2, water, and some other biological agents to form urea. The kidney's do not make urea. They only filter it out of the blood, then store it in the bladder for excretion as urine. Disruption to this system can cause conditions like hyperuremia and gout. Just to add that if answering an exam question, you would need to say that Urea is a breakdown of amino acids by deamination in the Liver.
