Role of glutamine in human carbohydrate metabolism in kidney and other tissues. (1/3706)

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Until recently, the understanding of many aspects of glutamine metabolism was based on animal and in vitro data. However, recent studies using isotopic and balance techniques have greatly advanced the understanding of glutamine metabolism in humans and its role in glucose metabolism in the kidney and other tissues. There is now evidence that in postabsorptive humans, glutamine is an important glucose precursor and makes a significant contribution to the addition of new carbon to the glucose carbon pool. The importance of alanine for gluconeogenesis, viewed in terms of the addition of new carbons, is less than previously assumed. It appears that glutamine is predominantly a renal gluconeogenic substrate, whereas alanine gluconeogenesis is essentially confined to the liver. As shown recently, renal gluconeogenesis contributes 20 to 25% to whole-body glucose production. Moreover, glutamine has been shown not only to stimulate net muscle glycogen storage but also to stimulate gluconeogenesis in normal humans. Finally, in humans with type II diabetes, conversion of glutamine to glucose is increased (more so than that of alanine). The available evidence on the hormonal regulation of glutamine gluconeogenesis in kidney and liver and its alterations under pathological conditions are discussed.  (+info)

The biochemical role of glutamine 188 in human galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase. (2/3706)

The substitution of arginine for glutamine at amino acid 188 (Q188R) ablates the function of human galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase (GALT) and is the most common mutation causing galactosemia in the white population. GALT catalyzes two consecutive reactions. The first reaction binds UDP-glucose (UDP-Glu), displaces glucose-1-phosphate (glu-1-P), and forms the UMP-GALT intermediate. In the second reaction, galactose-1-phosphate (gal-1-P) is bound, UDP-galactose (UDP-Gal) is released, and the free enzyme is recycled. In this study, we modeled glutamine, asparagine, and a common mutation arginine at amino acid 188 on the three-dimensional model of the Escherichia coli GALT-UMP protein crystal. We found that the amide group of the glutamine side chain could provide two hydrogen bonds to the phosphoryl oxygens of UMP with lengths of 2.52 and 2.82 A. Arginine and asparagine could provide only one hydrogen bond of 2. 52 and 3.02 A, respectively. To test this model, we purified recombinant human Gln188-, Arg188-, and Asn188-GALT and analyzed the first reaction in the absence of gal-1-P by quantitating glu-1-P released using enzyme-linked methods. Gln188-GALT displaced 80 +/- 7. 0 nmol glu-1-P/mg GALT/min in the first reaction. By contrast, both Arg188- and Asn188-GALT released more glu-1-P (170 +/- 8.0 and 129 +/- 28.4 nmol/mg GALT/min, respectively). The overall, double displacement reaction was quantitated in the presence of gal-1-P. Gln188-GALT produced 80,030 +/- 5,910 nmol glu-1-P/mg GALT/min, whereas the mutant Arg188- and Asn188-GALT released only 600 +/- 71. 2 and 2960 +/- 283.6 nmole glu-1-P/mg GALT/min, respectively. We conclude from these data that glutamine at position 188 stabilizes the UMP-GALT intermediate through hydrogen bonding and enables the double displacement of both glu-1-P and UDP-Gal. The substitution of arginine or asparagine at position 188 reduces hydrogen bonding and destabilizes UMP-GALT. The unstable UMP-GALT allows single displacement of glu-1-P with release of free GALT but impairs the subsequent binding of gal-1-P and displacement of UDP-Gal.  (+info)

Kinetic impairment of nitrogen and muscle glutamine metabolisms in old glucocorticoid-treated rats. (3/3706)

Aged rats are more sensitive to injury, possibly through an impairment of nitrogen and glutamine (Gln) metabolisms mediated by glucocorticoids. We studied the metabolic kinetic response of adult and old rats during glucocorticoid treatment. The male Sprague-Dawley rats were 24 or 3 mo old. Both adult and old rats were divided into 7 groups. Groups labeled G3, G5, and G7 received, by intraperitoneal injection, 1.50 mg/kg of dexamethasone (Dex) for 3, 5, and 7 days, respectively. Groups labeled G3PF, G5PF, and G7PF were pair fed to the G3, G5, or G7 groups and were injected with an isovolumic solution of NaCl. One control group comprised healthy rats fed ad libitum. The response to aggression induced specifically by Dex (i.e., allowing for variations in pair-fed controls) appeared later in the aged rats (decrease in nitrogen balance from day 1 in adults but only from day 4 in old rats). The adult rats rapidly adapted to Dex treatment, whereas the catabolic state worsened until the end of treatment in the old rats. Gln homeostasis was not maintained in the aged rats; despite an early increase in muscular Gln synthetase activity, the Gln pool was depleted. These results suggest a kinetic impairment of both nitrogen and muscle Gln metabolisms in response to Dex with aging.  (+info)

Paraoxonase 192 Gln/Arg gene polymorphism, coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction in type 2 diabetes. (4/3706)

Paraoxonase is an HDL-associated enzyme implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis by protecting lipoproteins against peroxidation. Its biallelic gene polymorphism at codon 192 (glutamine/arginine) has been associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). To further evaluate the role of this paraoxonase gene polymorphism for CAD in type 2 diabetes, we determined the paraoxonase genotype in 288 type 2 diabetic patients (170 with and 118 without angiographically documented CAD). The paraoxonase 192 Gln/Arg genotype was assessed using polymerase chain reaction followed by AlwI digestion. The frequency of the Gln allele was 0.656 in the CAD patients and 0.746 in the controls (chi2 = 5.36, P = 0.02). Compared with the Gln/Gln genotypes, the age-adjusted odds ratio for CAD was 1.78 (95% CI 1.08-2.96, P = 0.02) in subjects carrying at least one Arg allele. In the multivariate analysis, this association was even stronger after correction for the possible confounders age, sex, smoking history, and hypertension. Among current and former smokers, the odds ratio (OR) for having CAD among patients with at least one Arg allele was 3.58 (1.45-9.53, P < 0.01). The paraoxonase Arg allele was not associated with the history of myocardial infarction (OR 1.20 [0.73-1.99, NS]), but was with the extent of CAD (OR for three-vessel disease 1.92 [1.15-3.27, P = 0.01]). Our data indicate that the 192 Arg allele of the human paraoxonase gene is a risk factor for CAD but not myocardial infarction in type 2 diabetic patients, a risk factor further modified by cigarette smoking. This risk could possibly be explained by a reduced ability of the paraoxonase Arg isoform to protect lipoproteins against peroxidation.  (+info)

Analysis of zinc binding sites in protein crystal structures. (5/3706)

The geometrical properties of zinc binding sites in a dataset of high quality protein crystal structures deposited in the Protein Data Bank have been examined to identify important differences between zinc sites that are directly involved in catalysis and those that play a structural role. Coordination angles in the zinc primary coordination sphere are compared with ideal values for each coordination geometry, and zinc coordination distances are compared with those in small zinc complexes from the Cambridge Structural Database as a guide of expected trends. We find that distances and angles in the primary coordination sphere are in general close to the expected (or ideal) values. Deviations occur primarily for oxygen coordinating atoms and are found to be mainly due to H-bonding of the oxygen coordinating ligand to protein residues, bidentate binding arrangements, and multi-zinc sites. We find that H-bonding of oxygen containing residues (or water) to zinc bound histidines is almost universal in our dataset and defines the elec-His-Zn motif. Analysis of the stereochemistry shows that carboxyl elec-His-Zn motifs are geometrically rigid, while water elec-His-Zn motifs show the most geometrical variation. As catalytic motifs have a higher proportion of carboxyl elec atoms than structural motifs, they provide a more rigid framework for zinc binding. This is understood biologically, as a small distortion in the zinc position in an enzyme can have serious consequences on the enzymatic reaction. We also analyze the sequence pattern of the zinc ligands and residues that provide elecs, and identify conserved hydrophobic residues in the endopeptidases that also appear to contribute to stabilizing the catalytic zinc site. A zinc binding template in protein crystal structures is derived from these observations.  (+info)

Deamidation of alpha-A crystallin from nuclei of cataractous and normal human lenses. (6/3706)

PURPOSE: To quantitate the extent of deamidation of asparagine-101, glutamine-50, and glutamine-6 of alpha-A crystallin in the nucleus from human cataractous and normal lenses. METHODS: Reverse phase chromatography was used to prepare alpha-A crystallin from total proteins of the nucleus from cataractous and age-matched normal human lenses. Synthetic peptides were made corresponding to the expected amidated and deamidated tryptic fragments containing asparagine-101, glutamine-50, and glutamine-6. The peptides were used to identify and quantitate amidated and deamidated forms of tryptic fragments from alpha-A crystallin eluting from a reverse phase column. RESULTS: Significant amounts of deamidation of asparagine-101 and glutamine-50, but not glutamine-6, were present in alpha-A crystallin from nuclear sections of both cataractous and age-matched normal lenses. Quantitative analysis of tryptic peptides containing these residues indicated no statistical difference in deamidation in cataractous versus normal lenses. CONCLUSIONS: There was no significant difference in the extent of deamidation of asparagine-101, glutamine-50, and glutamine-6 for alpha-A crystallin, purified from the nucleus of cataractous versus age-matched normal lenses. These results strongly suggest that deamidation of these residues does not play a role in the biogenesis of human nuclear cataract.  (+info)

Subunit interface selectivity of the alpha-neurotoxins for the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. (7/3706)

Peptide toxins selective for particular subunit interfaces of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor have proven invaluable in assigning candidate residues located in the two binding sites and for determining probable orientations of the bound peptide. We report here on a short alpha-neurotoxin from Naja mossambica mossambica (NmmI) that, similar to other alpha-neurotoxins, binds with high affinity to alphagamma and alphadelta subunit interfaces (KD approximately 100 pM) but binds with markedly reduced affinity to the alphaepsilon interface (KD approximately 100 nM). By constructing chimeras composed of portions of the gamma and epsilon subunits and coexpressing them with wild type alpha, beta, and delta subunits in HEK 293 cells, we identify a region of the subunit sequence responsible for the difference in affinity. Within this region, gammaPro-175 and gammaGlu-176 confer high affinity, whereas Thr and Ala, found at homologous positions in epsilon, confer low affinity. To identify an interaction between gammaGlu-176 and residues in NmmI, we have examined cationic residues in the central loop of the toxin and measured binding of mutant toxin-receptor combinations. The data show strong pairwise interactions or coupling between gammaGlu-176 and Lys-27 of NmmI and progressively weaker interactions with Arg-33 and Arg-36 in loop II of this three-loop toxin. Thus, loop II of NmmI, and in particular the face of this loop closest to loop III, appears to come into close apposition with Glu-176 of the gamma subunit surface of the binding site interface.  (+info)

Solution structure of the alpha-subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin. (8/3706)

The three-dimensional solution structure of the alpha-subunit in the alpha, beta heterodimeric human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), deglycosylated with endo-beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase-B (dg-alpha hCG), was determined using 2D homonuclear and 2D heteronuclear 1H, 13C NMR spectroscopy at natural abundance in conjunction with the program package XPLOR. The distance geometry/simulated annealing protocol was modified to allow for the efficient modelling of the cystine knot motif present in alpha hCG. The protein structure was modelled with 620 interproton distance restraints and the GlcNAc residue linked to Asn78 was modelled with 30 protein-carbohydrate and 3 intraresidual NOEs. The solution structure of dg-alpha hCG is represented by an ensemble of 27 structures. In comparison to the crystal structure of the dimer, the solution structure of free dg-alpha hCG exhibits: (a) an increased structural disorder (residues 33-57); (b) a different backbone conformation near Val76 and Glu77; and (c) a larger flexibility. These differences are caused by the absence of the interactions with the beta-subunit. Consequently, in free dg-alpha hCG, compared to the intact dimer, the two hairpin loops 20-23 and 70-74 are arranged differently with respect to each other. The beta-GlcNAc(78) is tightly associated with the hydrophobic protein-core in between the beta-hairpins. This conclusion is based on the NOEs from the axial H1, H3, H5 atoms and the N-acetyl protons of beta-GlcNAc(78) to the protein-core. The hydrophobic protein-core between the beta-hairpins is thereby shielded from the solvent.  (+info)

AU - Yeh, Sung Ling. PY - 2009/3. Y1 - 2009/3. N2 - Acute lung injury (ALI) is a critical syndrome associated with respiratory dysfunction, and neutrophils are considered to be central to the pathogenesis of ALI. This study investigated the effects of glutamine (Gln) on neutrophil recruitment in a model of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ALI. C57BL/6 mice were fed a standard diet either with casein as the nitrogen source or with 25% of total nitrogen replaced by Gln. After 10 days, intratracheal instillation of LPS was used to induce ALI. Mice were killed at 0, 6, 12, and 24 h after LPS administration (n = 10/group). Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and lung tissues were collected for further analysis. The results showed that, compared with the control group, lipid peroxide levels in the lungs were ...
The second part of the thesis consists of observational studies on plasma glutamine concentrations in connection to outcome and specific diagnoses. In the post ICU period, plasma glutamine concentration was within the reference range and was not related to mortality. In liver failure, regardless of aetiology, severity and course of illness, a high plasma glutamine concentration was a common finding, although most frequent in patients with acute fulminant and acute-on-chronic liver failure. There was a positive correlation between the severity of liver failure and plasma glutamine concentration. Admission hyperglutaminemia (≥930 μmol/L) was an independent predictor for high mortality. A majority of the hyperglutaminemic patients had a liver condition, although hyperglutaminemia was also observed in patients without signs of liver affection ...

Methods: Mice were randomly assigned to a normal group (NC), a control group, or a Gln group. The NC group was fed standard chow diet; the control group was fed a common semipurified diet; and the Gln group received a diet in which part of the casein was replaced by Gln, which provided 25% of total amino acid nitrogen. After 3 wk, sepsis was induced by cecal ...
Glutamine deprivation is known to induce the proto-oncogene c-Myc (18), which has been reported to up-regulate GLS1 through its repression of posttranscriptional mechanisms mediated by miR-23a/b (12) and the lncRNA GLS-AS (24). Consistently, we found that glutamine deprivation stress also increased c-Myc expression, but we did not observe up-regulation of GLS1. Rather, our efforts to understand the mechanisms controlling GLS1 expression revealed the involvement of GIRGL, an lncRNA that negatively regulates GLS1 through a mechanism that appears independent of c-Myc. GIRGL was shown to restrain mitochondrial respiration, suggesting that it contributed to the efficacious utilization of available glutamine, thus ensuring that limiting substrate amounts will not be exhausted. Subsequent investigations addressed two main aspects of the relationship between the levels of glutamine, GIRGL, and GLS1: the first being the basis for the up-regulation of GIRGL under limiting glutamine conditions and, second, ...
Deregulated expression of MYC enhances glutamine utilization and renders cell survival dependent on glutamine, inducing glutamine addiction. Surprisingly, colon cancer cells that express high levels of MYC due to WNT pathway mutations are not glutamine‐addicted but undergo a reversible cell cycle arrest upon glutamine deprivation. We show here that glutamine deprivation suppresses translation of endogenous MYC via the 3′‐UTR of the MYC mRNA, enabling escape from apoptosis. This regulation is mediated by glutamine‐dependent changes in adenosine‐nucleotide levels. Glutamine deprivation causes a global reduction in promoter association of RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) and slows transcriptional elongation. While activation of MYC restores binding of MYC and RNAPII function on most promoters, restoration of elongation is imperfect and activation of MYC in the absence of glutamine causes stalling of RNAPII on multiple genes, correlating with R‐loop formation. Stalling of RNAPII and R‐loop ...

Review question: In preterm infants, does glutamine supplementation reduce the risk of death or disability?. Background: Glutamine is an important nutrient for growth and development and may be especially important in protecting preterm infants from infections and gut problems that cause death and disability. We sought evidence that giving preterm infants extra glutamine improves important outcomes.. Study characteristics: We found 12 randomised controlled trials (enrolling 2877 infants in total). The trials were generally of good methodological quality.. Key results: These trials did not provide strong or consistent evidence that glutamine supplementation affected the risk of death, serious infection or bowel disease, or longer term development.. Conclusions: Glutamine supplementation is not likely to be beneficial for preterm infants.. ...
1.During infusion of [5-15N]glutamine in patients with gastrointestinal cancer we unexpectedly observed a gradual decrease in time of the appearance rate (Ra) of glutamine in plasma. Here we investigate whether the failure to achieve a plateau isotopic enrichment in plasma is, among other factors, due to incomplete equilibration of the glutamine tracer with the large intramuscular free glutamine pool.. 2.Plasma and intramuscular glutamine enrichment were measured during 6-11 ;h infusions of L-[5-15N]glutamine and L-[1-13C]glutamine in post-absorptive patients admitted to hospital for elective abdominal surgery. L-[1-13C]Leucine and L-[ring-2H5]phenylalanine were infused to measure the proportion of glutamine appearing in plasma directly due to its release from protein.. 3.The glutamine tracer entered muscle, but the rise in intramuscular glutamine enrichment was small, presumably as a result of the enormous size of the intramuscular glutamine pool and the limited speed of entry of glutamine into ...
Glutamine, a nonessential amino acid, is preferred fuel for rapidly proliferating cells in human body. Those cells include the enterocytes in small intestine, lymphocytes, macrophages, and fibroblasts. Glutamine also transports nitrogen between tissues and serves as a precursor to glutathione which is a potent antioxidant. A healthy human body contains abundant glutamine, either from diet or from skeletal muscle tissue that synthesizes it.. During critical illness the demand for glutamine is increased. Rapid depletion of glutamine stores in critically ill patients has been described and correlated to increased mortality. Glutamine depletion may be deleterious in critical illness because of adverse effects on the essential functions mentioned above. For example glutamine depletion may cause gut mucosal barrier function to deteriorate, leading to bacterial translocation and enhanced systemic inflammatory response with increased risk for multisystem organ failure. Clinical trials performed in a ...
This study aimed to establish the plasma glutamine levels in a group of mixed ICU patients. It is important as the measurement of glutamine levels is currently not readily available, expensive and impractical in most hospital settings. This research serves as a pilot study for a larger study to be conducted in the SA setting, which will further elaborate on plasma glutamine levels throughout ICU stay, taking into account severity of illness as well as nutritional status of the patients. In order to obtain a representative sample of a real-life ICU population, all patients admitted to the chosen ICUs during the study period were eligible for inclusion.. The median plasma glutamine level of this ICU population (497 μmol/L [387-644 μmol/L]) was in the normal range, with 38.2 % categorised as glutamine deficient. This is comparable with findings by Oudemans-van Straaten et al. [15], indicating a median ICU admission level of 495 μmol/L (interquartile range 350-600 μmol/L) together with other ...

ObjectiveEnteral glutamine supplements have been shown to reduce infectious morbidity in trauma patients, but their effect on burn patients is not known. The objective of this study was to measure the impact of enteral glutamine supplementation on infectious morbidity, length of care, and the immune
The patients who fulfilled the described criteria were randomly assigned to groups P or E using sequentially numbered containers for concealed randomization. Those in group P received the continuous infusion of parenteral glutamine dipeptide supplement (Dipeptiven 100ml, Fresenius Kabi) and were fed enterally with a standard commercial enteral polymeric diet without added glutamine (Ensure, Abbott Ross). The patients in group E received the enteral glutamine supplement as continuous administration of a standard commercial enteral diet supplemented with glutamine (Alitraq, Abbott Ross). The dose of the enteral glutamine, in a form of a free acid in this diet, depended on the volume of enteral food. Both groups of patients were treated with the glutamine supplement for five days. The other therapeutic procedures did not differ between the groups. All the patients were on continuous gastric feeding for 20 hours daily, starting with 20ml/hour. The enteral nutrition was started in 24 hours following ...

In the present study, we evaluated the effect of Gln supplementation on ethanol-induced gut barrier dysfunction and liver injury in mice in vivo. Ethanol feeding caused a significant increase in inulin permeability in distal colon. Elevated permeability was associated with a redistribution of tight junction and adherens junction proteins and depletion of detergent-insoluble ...
Glutamine is one of the most important amino acids and is required by every muscle in the human body. Glutamine is a building block for proteins that maintain cellular health and tissue repair. Glutamine can be found in meat, fish, vegetables and pulses. Anyone involved in high intensity training programmes will find Glutamine a beneficial supplement, especially with muscle tissue being the primary source of glutamine in the blood. During critical illness, trauma, intestinal disease, starvation,(intravenous feeding), wasting (excessive loss of lean body mass), and extreme endurance exercise and to preserve muscle mass when dieting, Glutamine was shown to be beneficial. Hence, glutamine is referred to as a conditionally essential amino acid. Trade Ingredients are a global supplier of nutritional products. This is pharmaceutical grade Glutamine at wholesale prices. Glutamine is an amino acid. Glutamine is found in most meat and fish as well as in vegetables and pulses, although in smaller ...
To assist in preventing OTS, consume glutamine both before and after training, and before you go to sleep. Follow the recommended dose (which usually falls between five and ten grams postworkout). Depending on your diet, you may want to consider increasing or decreasing the amount. For a high carbohydrate diet, for example, more glutamine may be appropriate. Glutamine can increase glycogen storage by as much as 16 percent if consumed post-workout.. If you consume glutamine half an hour before working out, you may see noticeable improvements in mass gains.. Side Effects. Although glutamine is not noted for having side effects, people sometimes mention those such as nausea when consuming glutamine in high quantities (above the recommended dose. In short, if you consume glutamine as recommended, you should see no problems.. As with most supplements, the amount of glutamine to take offers no one answer for everyone. Use the above recommendations as a guide and look to your body for feedback. With ...
Glutamine is one of the conditionally essential free amino acids with multiple biological functions. Its supplementation to parenteral nutrition has been widely used for the management of complications in intensive care. However, controversial clinical reports have generated reluctance in the use of this pharmaco-nutrient. In this commentary, we address the impact of four studies that influenced the recommendations on glutamine supplementation by the Canadian Clinical Practice Guide 2015. Because of the importance of this guideline in clinical practice, we strongly believe that a more rigorous and critical evaluation is required to support recommendations in future guidelines.
Advanced Recovery & Immune System Support. Glutamine is the most abundant single amino acid in the body and its considered to be conditionally essential during times when the body undergoes large amounts of stress (ex: heavy exercise). At this point your body may need more Glutamine than it can produce making supplementation advantageous. Glutamine supplementation may support the removal of waste products in the body, digestion and immune system function. Stress on the body can also result in inadequate amounts of Alanine, which along with Glutamine, is considered to be the most one of the important of the amino acids for actual amino acid metabolism. Alanine has also been shown to support the immune system as well as energy management. Glutamine Plus also features Sustamine, a unique dipeptide ingredient that combines the amino acids L-Alanine and L-Glutamine to help your body rehydrate, replenish and recover. Sustamines dipeptide structure is quickly and easily absorbed by the body ...

The oncogene c-Myc is one of the major players responsible for this metabolic alteration. However, the molecular mechanisms involved in Myc-induced metabolic reprogramming are not well defined. Here we identify p32, a mitochondrial protein known to play a role in the expression of mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes, as a critical player in Myc-induced glutamine addiction. We show that p32 is a direct transcriptional ...
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid that is an important metabolic resource for proliferating tissues by acting as a proteinogenic amino acid, a nitrogen donor for biosynthetic reactions and as a substrate for the citric acid or tricarboxylic acid cycle. The human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) productively infects activated CD4(+) T cells that are known to require glutamine for proliferation and for carrying out effector functions. As a virus, HIV-1 is furthermore entirely dependent on host metabolism to support its replication. In this study, we compared HIV-1 infected with uninfected activated primary human CD4(+) T cells with regard to glutamine metabolism. We report that glutamine concentrations are elevated in HIV-1-infected cells and that glutamine is important to support HIV-1 replication, although the latter is closely linked to the glutamine dependency of cell survival. Metabolic tracer experiments showed that entry of glutamine-derived carbon into the citric acid ...

The effects of dexamethasone on nitrogen and amino acid metabolism in the dog were studied in order to gain insight into the role of glucocorticoids in accelerated proteolysis and altered metabolism of glutamine in catabolic illnesses. After dexamethasone administration at a dose of 0.44 mg X day-1 X kg-1, nitrogen balance shifted from slightly positive (+0.126 g N X day-1 X kg-1) to markedly negative (-0.278 g N X day-1 X kg-1). This was associated with a 23% fall in total free amino acid nitrogen in skeletal muscle, with 80% of the decline accounted for by a decrease in glutamine. Plasma glutamine concentration decreased by 26%, although total plasma free amino acid nitrogen was unchanged because of a 49% increase in alanine. The alterations in intracellular and circulating levels of glutamine were not accompanied by measurable changes in glutamine synthetase or glutaminase activities in skeletal muscle. Hindquarter amino acid flux measurements demonstrated that the decline in intracellular ...
Studies of enterally administered glutamine supplementation to patients fed by enteral nutrition comprise a much more heterogenic patient group [29, 30, 46-50]. There are studies of exclusively trauma patients or burn patients, or there are studies that include a broad spectrum of critically ill patients with a wide range of diagnoses and consequently a very variable ICU length of stay. Not surprisingly the meta-analysis shows no mortality advantage but in many individual studies a morbidity advantage [16]. These studies represent an interpretation problem in several respects; in many cases a hypocaloric feeding, uncertainty concerning the utilization of the given supplementation, sometimes a considerable dilution effect from many included short-stayers with a low mortality rate, and a short treatment period [48].. An interesting study with a different concept uses an enteral product with key nutrients, including 30 g of glutamine per day. Some studies employing this product are small in size ...
Allmax Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid and one of the most abundant amino acids in the body (comprising approximately 30% of amino acids in the plasma). It is usually classified as a conditionally essential amino acid, as it is produced by the body, but during periods of extreme stress or trauma, it is released from the body and may need to be replenished. Glutamine is naturally found in beans, poultry, fish and dairy products. The majority of Glutamine is produced in the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Additionally, glutamine is synthesized in the lungs, liver and brain. It is predominately used for fuel by the small intestines, immune system, hair follicles and the gastrointestinal tract.. Allmax Glutamine supplementation is beneficial during periods of stress, such as after training Glutamine ensures the body remains in a state of anabolism. For those who train, supplementing with glutamine ensures the bodys stores of this important amino acid are optimized and the skeletal ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Interaction of glutamine and arginine on cerebrovascular reactivity to hypercapnia. AU - Okada, Toshiki. AU - Watanabe, Yukinaga. AU - Brusilow, Saul W.. AU - Traystman, Richard J.. AU - Koehler, Raymond C.. PY - 2000/5. Y1 - 2000/5. N2 - Glutamine is purported to inhibit recycling of citrulline to arginine and to limit nitric oxide release in vitro. However, vasoactive effects of glutamine have not been clearly demonstrated in vivo. During hyperammonemia, impaired cerebrovascular reactivity to CO2 is related to glutamine accumulation. We tested the hypotheses that 1) glutamine infusion in the absence of hyperammonemia impairs cerebrovascular CO2 reactivity and 2) arginine infusion preserves CO2 reactivity during glutamine infusion and during hyperammonemia. Pentobarbital sodium-anesthetized rats were equipped with a closed cranial window for measuring pial arteriolar diameter. Intravenous infusion of 3 mmol · kg-1 · h-1 of L-glutamine for 6 h produced threefold increases in ...
Glutamine is taken up into the rat hepatoma cell line H4-IIE-C3 by a Na+-dependent transport system which is specific for glutamine, alanine, serine, cysteine and asparagine and does not tolerate substitution of Na+ by Li+. Glutamine transport was relatively weakly inhibited by a 50-fold excess of leucine and was not inhibited by phenylalanine or N-methyl aminoisobutyrate. These general properties are characteristic of the recently identified ASCT/B0 family of transporters. Using a reverse transcriptase PCR-based homology cloning approach, we have characterized a cDNA for a novel member of this transporter family (H4-ASCT2) from H4-IIE-C3 cells. The cDNA encodes a 551-amino acid protein which exhibits similarities of between 75 and 85% with ASCT/B0 transporters previously cloned from other sources. When expressed in Xenopus oocytes, this transporter catalyses Na+-dependent glutamine uptake with characteristics very similar to those of glutamine uptake into the H4-IIE-C3 cells. This newly ...

Skeletal muscle contains the greatest intracellular concentration of glutamine, comprising up to 60 percent of total body glutamine stores, and is considered the primary storage depot of glutamine, and thus the primary exporter of glutamine to other tissues [1]. In times of metabolic stress, glutamine is released into circulation, where it is transported to the tissue in need. Intracellular skeletal muscle glutamine concentration is affected by various assaults including injury, sepsis, prolonged stress, and starvation. Besides skeletal muscle, the lungs are the next largest producer of glutamine[9,12 ...
Metabolic acidosis redirects interorgan glutamine flow from hepatic utilization to renal ammoniagenesis at the expense of ureagenesis. The roles of arterial glutamine load and organ glutaminase capacity in the regulation of glutamine balance across the gut, liver, and kidneys were studied in control and chronically acidotic rats. In control rats these organs combined to remove 733 nmol glutamine X min-1 X 100 g-1 in agreement with their respective glutaminase content, gut greater than liver greater than kidneys. In chronic metabolic acidosis renal glutamine extraction alone increased to 1,158 nmol X min-1 X 100 g-1 associated with an increased glutaminase capacity. However, the total glutamine deficit across these organs rose to only 1,043 nmol glutamine consumed X min-1 X 100 g-1 as a consequence of hepatic glutamine uptake reversing to net release. This reversal was not dependent on increased hepatic glutamine synthetase capacity, but rather appears to be dependent on the combined effect of ...
Alcohol inhibits the production of glutamine once it enters the bloodstream. This in itself is not a bad thing; it is when the body tries to play catch-up that creates fatigue. Glutamine production revs up after the partying is done and the partier is in bed. The bonus glutamine stimulates the brain and keeps it from achieving a deep sleep. The effect of being hopped up on glutamine upon waking is fatigue, often punctuated with tremors, anxiety and feelings of restlessness. This diabolical mix of tiredness and scratchy-eyed irritability is known as glutamine rebound and can also lead to increased blood pressure, nausea and a host of other ailments. Ouch.. Since a glutamine rebound is the result of alcohol preventing the production of glutamine, the only real cure is not drinking alcohol, but lets be realistic; just drinking a bit less than usual will help. The liver processes alcohol at roughly one drink per hour, so if you can manage to drink fewer drinks than hours you have to sleep, you ...
In 1955 Harry Eagle found that glutamine was essential for proliferating cells. Eagle studied on nutritional needs of a cell and found that glutamine was consumed ten times more than any other amino acids. Cells were unable to multiply without glutamine. Kovacevic and collegues found, in 1971, that glutamine is used as fuel and the carbon molecules found in gluatmine was also found in the carbon dioxide excreted by the cell. Glutamine loses its amide group using the an enzyme, glutaminase, to produce glutamic acid, which then loses its amine group using glutamic acid dehydrogenase to form α-ketogluterate.. Current studies use 13C to identify the carbon movements in the conversion of glutamine to lactic acid. Gluatamine uses malic enzymes to convert to lactic acid. Malic enzymes decarboxylates malic acid making carbon dioxide, NADPH and pyruvate. The NADPH produced is then used to for the cell to multiply.. Glutamine also contributes to the cell by producing oxaloacetate according to studies ...
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. In these cells, glutamine uptake is markedly enhanced and far exceeds the metabolic requirements of the cell. Much of this glutamine is inefficiently used and secreted from the cells as lactic acid, ammonia, or alanine, a situation with many parallels to the inefficient metabolism of glucose by many cancer cells (1). Glutamine is used by the cell for both bioenergetic and biosynthetic needs. Glutamine can be used an amino acid for protein synthesis, as a carbon source, or as the primary nitrogen donor for multiple essential biosynthetic reactions in the cell. Once taken up by the cell, much of the glutamine is converted to glutamate by mitochondrial glutaminase, an enzyme whose levels are
Glutamine starvation up-regulates the expression of amino acid transporters. (A) RNA from cells treated with DMEM was extracted for transcriptome analysis at the indicated times. (B) CFP-LC3 NRK cells were treated with DMEM in the absence or presence of glutamine or serum. Proteins from cell lysates were analyzed by Western blotting for SLC7A5 and β-actin. The values indicate the SLC7A5/actin ratio as the ratio of that in -S/Gln 0-h cells. (C) RNA from CFP-LC3 NRK cells treated with DMEM in the absence or presence of glutamine or serum was extracted and analyzed for endogenous Slc7a5 mRNA expression by quantitative PCR.

(E) CFP-LC3 NRK cells were pretreated with DMEM for 4 h, and glutamine or serum was added to the cells. Proteins from cell lysates were analyzed by Western blotting for SLC7A5 and β-actin. The values indicate ...
The aims of this study were twofold: (i) to determine quantitatively the contribution of glutamate/glutamine cycling to total astrocyte/neuron substrate trafficking for the replenishment of neurotransmitter glutamate; and (ii) to determine the relative contributions of anaplerotic flux and glutamate/glutamine cycling to total glutamine synthesis. In this work in vivo and in vitro (13)C NMR spectroscopy were used, with a [2-(13)C]glucose or [5-(13)C]glucose infusion, to determine the rates of glutamate/glutamine cycling, de novo glutamine synthesis via anaplerosis, and the neuronal and astrocytic tricarboxylic acid cycles in the rat cerebral cortex. The rate of glutamate/glutamine cycling measured in this study is compared with that determined from re-analysis of (13)C NMR data acquired during a [1-(13)C]glucose infusion. The excellent agreement between these rates supports the hypothesis that glutamate/glutamine cycling is a major metabolic flux ( approximately 0.20 micromol/min/g) in the cerebral

It may sound like leucine is free to exert its powerful effect of mTOR activation, but one must remember that protein breakdown and synthesis are occurring throughout the entire body; the bodys protein stores are in a constant state of flux. The constant body protein flux plus the increased BCAA/leucine oxidation caused by exercise means that leucine is in high demand and therefore may not be able to participate in muscle growth at its full potential. This is where supplementing with additional BCAAs (or free-form leucine depending on your beliefs) and glutamine comes into play. Supplementing with glutamine will help keep skeletal muscle and plasma glutamine concentrations elevated and decrease BCAA/leucine oxidation and therefore muscle catabolism. ...

Benefits of Glutamine. Food rich of Glutamine. Glutamine deficiency symptoms. Recommended daily dose of Glutamine. Vitamins containing Glutamine.
If total body health is your goal, then you should definitely be supplementing your diet with glutamine. Glutamine is a supplement we strongly recommend here at BodipHat. Glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the body. Because glutamine is so prevalent, it is also very versatile in what it does in the body. Glutamine is known mostly as an immune system booster but also has been known to aid in muscle building, fight of muscle wasting in burn victims and A.I.D.S. patients, aid in gut health and digestion, and even repair ulcers and stomach lining. On top of all these benefits glutamine has also been shown to aid with fat loss. As I mentioned earlier glutamine helps fight of muscle wasting. This is due to a cell-volumizing effect that glutamine has. Cell volumizing is when a cell expands in size due to its ability to absorb more water and nutrients. This reduces muscle tissue breakdown and helps keep your muscles full. This in turn helps create a better pump. This is beneficial because ...
What is glutamine?. Glutamine is an amino acid and one of many important building blocks of protein, and therefore our muscles and immune cells.. Who might benefit from taking glutamine?. Glutamine is often used in times of need, with a number of proposed uses of glutamine. It is frequently taken after exercise to try and help increase muscle glycogen deposition, support the immune system and improve muscle fatigue.. Glutamine is a major fuel for the intestines, and as a result, its use in certain gut related issues has been widely discussed. Digestive inflammation can increase the need for glutamine and it is commonly recommended for those with leaky gut in an attempt to help repair the integrity of the cells found here.. So where can you get glutamine from in nature?. Great sources include:. ...
Exactly what are the health benefits and then challenges connected to having to take glutamine peptide to be a add to? It is essential to realize that glutamine is definitely an amino acid how the person releases effortlessly. Since it are usually created from the human body as well as end up being assimilated, it can be considered a new non-essential protein. Glutamine GHRP 6 is usually a better sort of further glutamine. Its covered by insurance with other protein and so the figure might absorb it all more quickly, considering the predictions that speedier intake provides relating to the preferred good results far sooner.. When the entire body releases glutamine typically, how come create a supplementation as efficient just as glutamine peptide? Glutamine becomes vital, indicating the system will not manufacture sufficiently, during strong physical activity, condition, and even upon a trauma. Players, specially musclemen, seek the a look at all the supplement to really make it glutamine for ...
Glutamine supplementation has been advocated for patients requiring parenteral nutritional support. However, the direct effect of glutamine on neoplastic cells is poorly understood. We therefore investigated the effects of glutamine on the proliferation, differentiation, and cell-matrix interactions of two human colon carcinoma cell lines (Caco-2 and SW620) adapted to glutamine-free media. Doubling times were calculated by logarithmic transformation of serial cell counts. Alkaline phosphatase, cathepsin C (dipeptidyl peptidase), lactase, and isomaltase expression (markers of differentiation) were assayed by digestion of synthetic substrates. Adhesion to matrix proteins was assessed by colorimetric quantitation of toluidine blue staining of adherent cells. Surface expression of Caco-2 receptors for matrix proteins (integrins) was studied by biotinylation and immunoprecipitation with specific antibodies. Glutamine (1-10 mm) dose-dependently stimulated Caco-2 proliferation on all matrices studied ...

The hydroxylation of proteins occurs as a post-translational modification, and is catalyzed by 2-oxoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases. [3] When molecules are hydroxylated, they become more water‐soluble, which affects their structure and function. It can take place on several amino acids, like lysine, asparagine, aspartate and histidine, but the most frequently hydroxylated amino acid residue in human proteins is proline. This is due to the fact that collagen makes up about 25-35% of the protein in our bodies and contains a hydroxyproline at almost every 3rd residue in its amino acid sequence. Collagen consists of both 3‐hydroxyproline and 4‐hydroxyproline residues. [4] Hydroxylation occurs at the γ-C atom, forming hydroxyproline (Hyp), which stabilizes the secondary structure of collagen due to the strong electronegative effects of oxygen.[5] Proline hydroxylation is also a vital component of hypoxia response via hypoxia inducible factors. In some cases, proline may be hydroxylated ...

Researcher D. G. Walker of the University of Birmingham determined the presence of two specific enzymes in adult guinea pig liver, both of which catalyze the phosphorylation of glucose to glucose 6 phosphate.[dubious - discuss] The two enzymes have been identified as a specific glucokinase (ATP-D-glucose 6-phosphotransferase) and non-specific hexokinase (ATP-D-hexose 6-phosphotransferase). Hepatic cell is freely permeable to glucose, and the initial rate of phosphorylation of glucose is the rate-limiting step in glucose metabolism by the liver (ATP-D-glucose 6-phosphotransferase) and non-specific hexokinase (ATP-D-hexose 6-phosphotransferase).[11] The role of glucose 6-phosphate in glycogen synthase: High blood glucose concentration causes an increase in intracellular levels of glucose 6 phosphate in liver, skeletal muscle and fat (adipose) tissue. (ATP-D-glucose 6-phosphotransferase) and non-specific hexokinase (ATP-D-hexose 6-phosphotransferase). In liver, synthesis of glycogen is directly ...
Thiolates, not thiols, attack disulfide bonds. Hence, thiol-disulfide exchange is inhibited at low pH (typically, below 8) where the protonated thiol form is favored relative to the deprotonated thiolate form. (The pKa of a typical thiol group is roughly 8.3, but can vary due to its environment.) Thiol-disulfide exchange is the principal reaction by which disulfide bonds are formed and rearranged in a protein. The rearrangement of disulfide bonds within a protein generally occurs via intra-protein thiol-disulfide exchange reactions; a thiolate group of a cysteine residue attacks one of the protein's own disulfide bonds. This process of disulfide rearrangement (known as disulfide shuffling) does not change the number of disulfide bonds within a protein, merely their location (i.e., which cysteines are bonded). Disulfide reshuffling is generally much faster than oxidation/reduction reactions, which change the number of disulfide bonds within a protein. The oxidation and reduction of protein ...
