L-glutamine is an alpha-amino acid that is one of the 20 amino acids consisting proteins. L-glutamine is a non-essential amino acids and is also the most abundant amino acids in human bodies.


L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid that is a crucial component of culture media that serves as a major energy source for cells in culture. L-Glutamine is very stable as a dry powder and as a frozen solution. In liquid media or stock solutions, however, L-glutamine degrades relatively rapidly. Optimal cell performance usually requires supplementation of the media with L-glutamine prior to use.
