Biochem/physiol Actions

Alanyl-glutamine (Ala-Gln) is a dipeptide that is used as a substitute for glutamine in mammalian cell culture media, because of the instability of glutamine in solution and the formation of ammonia as a breakdown product of glutamine in solution, which can have deleterious effects on cells in culture. Ala-Glu is stable to heat sterilization and is less ammonia genic than glutamine, which contributes to its advantages as a media component. Ala-Gln has been utilized to investigate polymorphonuclear leucocyte and myeloperoxidase activity in vitro.
