Amino Acids and Vitamins
L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid required by virtually all mammalian and insect cells grown in culture. Once deaminated, it is used as an energy source, incorporated into protein, and used in nucleic acid metabolism. L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine is a dipeptide derivative of L-glutamine, L-alanyl-L-glutamine incorporates L-alanine which protects the unstable alpha amino acid group. Aminopeptidases within the cells cleave the dipeptide, gradually releasing both L-glutamine and L-alanine for use by the cell.

L-glutamine should be thawed at 37°C with mixing to completely re-dissolve glutamine
