In which organ is urea produced?

The liver serves as a site for urea cycle that converts the ammonia present in mitochondria of hepatocytes into urea. Urea (also known as carbamide ) is a waste product of many living organisms, and is the major organic component of human urine. Amino acid catabolism results in the formation of ammonia. The urea cycle is a cycle of biochemical reactions that takes place in the liver to produce urea from ammonia.
