Based on a molecular formula of C5H10N2O3, the molecular weight to seven significant figures is 146.1456. Over the years, this value may have been reported in Sigma-Aldrich documentation or on labels as either 146.15 (by rounding up) or 146.14 (by truncation). The material itself has not changed.
L-Glutamine, 200 mM solution, tends to precipitate in solution when chilled. After thawing, it will be an opalescent solution. If allowed to settle, there can be some crystalline insolubles at the bottom of the bottle.The product should be warmed to 37°C for complete solubilization. To limit the number of times the product needs to be warmed to 37°C, the product can be divided into working aliquots which are stored at -20°C and used as needed. This will expose the product to the minimal amount of warming cycles.

Importance and uses of glutamine in hybridoma and mammalian cell culture
Human renal proximal tubule epithelial cells (RPTECs) are commonly used to predict human renal drug permeability and to investigate drug efflux. We have generated transporter knockout (KO) cell lines using CompoZr® Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) technology in a proprietary renal proximal tubule epithelial cell line.
Sigma-Aldrich presents an article about how proliferatively active cells require both a source of carbon and of nitrogen for the synthesis of macromolecules. Although a large proportion of tumor cells utilize aerobic glycolysis and shunt metabolites away from mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation, many tumor cells exhibit increased mitochondrial activity.
