Application

Alanyl-glutamine (Ala-Gln) is a dipeptide that is used as a substitute for glutamine in mammalian cell culture media. Glutamine is unstable in solution and forms ammonia which can have deleterious effects on cells in culture. Ala-Glu is stable to heat sterilization and is less ammoniagenic than glutamine, which contributes to its advantages as a media component.
