INTRODUCTION The amino acid glutamine (GLN) has received considerable attention as a potential therapeutic adjuvant in critical illness and in improving postoperative clinical outcomes. Most studies on the role of GLN in cellular physiology have historically focused on its anabolic roles in specific cell types and its contribution to growth in cancer cells. However, an emerging body of work that examines the consequences of GLN deprivation on cellular survival and gene expression has… Expand
Glutamine and its antioxidative potentials in diabetes
Abstract Glutamine (GLN) has many physiological functions in the body. Although it is a nonessential amino acid, GLN is considered as conditionally essential for patients with catabolic conditions.Expand
Pathways from glutamine to apoptosis.
TLDR
New findings indicate that glutamine availability is strongly related to the induction of apoptosis, working both as a nutrient and as a signalling molecule, acting directly or indirectly on the pathways leading to programmed cell death. Expand
Glutamine and Antioxidant Potential in Diabetes
TLDR
Factors, including attenuation of inflammatory reactions, decreases in cellular apoptosis, and enhancement of insulin secretion, may also contribute to the benefits of GLN in diabetes. Expand
Ammonium ions improve the survival of glutamine-starved hybridoma cells
TLDR
The results show that ammonium ions promote the survival of l-glutamine-deprived Sp2/0-Ag14 cells and modulate late-apoptotic events, and suggest that targeting survival-signaling pathways modulated by ammonium ion should be examined as a potential anti-cancer strategy. Expand
l-Glutamine Attenuates Apoptosis in Porcine Enterocytes by Regulating Glutathione-Related Redox Homeostasis.
TLDR
Findings indicate that l-glutamine attenuates 4-HNE-induced apoptosis by regulating GSH-related redox homeostasis and enhancing GSTA-mediated metabolism in enterocytes. Expand
Glutamine increases autophagy under Basal and stressed conditions in intestinal epithelial cells.
TLDR
It is proposed that glutamine contributes to cell survival during physiologic stress by induction of autophagy and prevents apoptosis under heat stress through its regulation of the mTOR and p38 MAP kinase pathways. Expand
Acidosis Promotes Bcl-2 Family-mediated Evasion of Apoptosis
TLDR
This work shows that incubation of lymphoma cell lines in acidic conditions blocks apoptosis induced by multiple cytotoxic metabolic stresses, including deprivation of glucose or glutamine and treatment with dexamethasone, and confirms with knockdown studies that these shifts direct survival decisions during starvation and acidosis. Expand
Effects of glutamine deprivation on oxidative stress and cell survival in breast cell lines
TLDR
It is demonstrated that glutamine deprivation resulted in decreased cell proliferation, time-dependent- and cell line-dependent ROS generation, aberrant mitochondrial membrane potential and disrupted cell cycle progression. Expand
PDHA1 gene knockout in prostate cancer cells results in metabolic reprogramming towards greater glutamine dependence
TLDR
Evidence is provided that glutaminolysis plays a compensatory role for cell survival upon alternative energy metabolism and targeting the glutamine anaplerosis of energy metabolism via GLS1 and GLUD1 in cancer cells may offer a potential novel therapeutic strategy. Expand
Glutamine Regulates the Human Epithelial Intestinal HCT-8 Cell Proteome under Apoptotic Conditions*S
TLDR
This study provides the first holistic picture of proteome modulation by glutamine in a human enterocytic cell line under apoptotic conditions and supports further evaluation of nutritional modulation of human intestinal proteome in various pathological conditions where apoptosis may be involved.

Glutamine depletion impairs cellular stress response in human leucocytes
TLDR
The data indicate that during periods of reduced plasma Gln levels the stress response of human lymphocytes is impaired, suggesting that Gln may be essential to minimize the susceptibility of leucocytes to cytotoxic inflammatory mediators. Expand
Effect of dietary glutamine on tumor glutathione levels and apoptosis-related proteins in DMBA-induced breast cancer of rats
TLDR
The results have shown that GLN supplementation caused a significant decrease in the tumor GSH levels and the ratio GSH/oxidized GSH (GSSG), accompanied by up- regulation of Bax and caspase-3, and down-regulation of Bcl-2. Expand
Glutamine deficiency renders human monocytic cells more susceptible to specific apoptosis triggers.
TLDR
It is shown that glutamine deprivation increases the susceptibility of monocytic cells to some but not all inducers of apoptosis, and suggests that Gln serves as a selective immunomodulating factor. Expand
The Oxidative Metabolism of Glutamine
TLDR
Analysis of the induction of mitochondrial ROI formation by TNF in parental and L929/Gln cells suggests that the effect of Gln on the sensitivity of TNF cytotoxicity involves a mechanism that renders the mitochondria more susceptible to TNF-induced mediators, resulting in enhanced ROI production and accelerated cytot toxicity. Expand
Regulative potential of glutamine--relation to glutathione metabolism.
TLDR
The relation of GLN to reduced glutathione metabolism is described and the alteration of reduced glutATHione metabolism under a variety of clinical conditions such as reperfusion injury, myocardial infarction, respiratory insufficiency, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, and clinical protein catabolism are discussed. Expand
Glutamine prevents cytokine-induced apoptosis in human colonic epithelial cells.
TLDR
Results show that Gln specifically protects intestinal epithelial cells against cytokine-induced apoptosis, and that this occurs by a mechanism that is distinct from the protection against oxidative stress mediated by cellular GSH. Expand
Why is L-glutamine metabolism important to cells of the immune system in health, postinjury, surgery or infection?
TLDR
Evidence to support the hypothesis that glutamine is beneficially immunomodulatory in animal models of infection and trauma, as well as trauma in humans, is provided. Expand
Glutamine and its relationship with intracellular redox status, oxidative stress and cell proliferation/death.
TLDR
In conclusion, this article shows evidences for the important role of glutamine in the regulation of the cellular redox balance, including brain oxidative metabolism, apoptosis and tumour cell proliferation. Expand
Glutamine reduces heat shock-induced cell death in rat intestinal epithelial cells.
TLDR
Glutamine supplementation reduced heat shock-induced cell death in cultures supplemented with L-glutamine and may play a key role in the prevention of intestinal mucosal atrophy. Expand
Determinants of glutamine dependence and utilization by normal and tumor‐derived breast cell lines
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cell growth is a function of GLN influx and suggest that GLN is used to supply glutamate and cystine, perhaps for glutathione synthesis. Expand
