L-Glutamine is an essential supplement for cell culture. The free amino acid L-glutamine is unstable and degrades to pyroglutamate. Alanyl-L-glutamine (Ala-Gln) and Gylcyl-L-glutamine (Gly-Gln) are used in cell culture media as alternative delivery forms of stabilized L-glutamine. Alanyl-glutamine is a widely used alternative supplement to L-glutamine in the production of biopharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food products. Alanyl-glutamine also acts as an antioxidant (peroxide) and anti-apoptosis (LPS-induced) factor. Ala-Gln has been used in studies on injury and sepsis, and on the effects of irradiation on leucine and protein metabolism in vivo. Ala-Gln has been utilized to investigate polymorphonuclear leucocyte and myeloperoxidase activity in vitro. Shown to improve intestinal health and enhances the immune system. It is also involved in various clinical studies such as cancer treatment, radiation and chemotherapy. It improves pancreatic beta-cell function, maintaining the mitochondrial metabolism and stimulus-secretion coupling essential for insulin release.
