Assay Principle

After extraction and derivatization L-Glutamine is quantitatively determined by ELISA. The competitive ELISA uses the microtiter plate format. The antigen is bound to the solid phase of the microtiter plate. The processed standards, controls and samples and the solid phase bound analyte compete for a fixed number of antiserum binding sites. When the system is in equilibrium, free antigen and free antigen-antiserum complexes are removed by washing. The antibody bound to the solid phase is detected by an anti-rabbit IgG-peroxidase conjugate using TMB as a substrate. The reaction is monitored at 450 nm. Quantification of unknown samples is achieved by comparing their absorbance with a reference curve prepared with known standards.

Additional Information

Assay Background

Glutamine (Gln) is an abundant non-essential amino acid that is involved in several physiological functions including the regulation of the immune system. However, in some disease conditions, Gln metabolism can be highly dysregulated. In cancer, Gln is highly consumed by tumor cells as to fulfill their bioenergetic and biosynthetic requirements for proliferation. Targeting Gln catabolism – mainly Glutaminase – is currently investigated as a therapeutic approach to circumvent high Gln consumption by cancer cells and maintain a sufficient level in the microenvironment for an effective anti-tumor immune response.
