L-glutamine participates in the formation of purine and pyrimidine nucleotides, amino sugars, glutathione, L-glutamate, other amino acids, and is used in protein synthesis and glucose production. L-glutamine, unlike most other amino acids, is not stable in solution. The rate at which this degradation proceeds is a function of time, temperature, and pH.
- L-glutamine (nonsterile) powder should be made as a filter-sterilized stock solution of 200mM (or similar) in distilled water
- Optimal concentration to use is dependent upon the cell type and medium used to culture the cells, but generally falls in the range of 2 to 6mM
