Glutamine Definition
What Is Glutamine?

One of the 20 amino acids commonly found (and directly coded for) in proteins. It is the amide at the carboxyl of the amino acid glutamate. Glutamine can participate in covalent cross linking reactions between proteins, by forming peptide like bonds by a transamidation reaction with lysine residues. This reaction, catalyzed by clotting factor XIII stabilizes the aggregates of fibrin formed during blood clotting. Glutamine is an amino acid derived from glutamic acid. It is an important component of proteins which plays a vital role in protein metabolism. Glutamine is classified as a non-essential amino acid, but premature infants cannot make it fast enough to satisfy their requirements for protein synthesis, so they must be provided with supplements. Glutamine might stimulate muscle growth in adults. Glutamine also is considered important to overall immunity, or glutamine has the ability to fight off diseases and infections. In healthy individuals, glutamine is a neutral, nonessential amino acid. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in our bodies performs several important functions in the body, particularly in those that are stressed because of certain diseases or conditions.
