explain urea cycle?

The urea cycle (ornithine cycle) is a cycle of biochemical reactions occurring in many animals that produces urea ((NH2)2CO) from ammonia (NH3). It takes place primarily in the liver, and to a lesser extent in the kidney. Organisms that cannot easily and quickly remove ammonia, convert it to substances like urea or uric acid, which are much less toxic.
