Interaction Information:

Comment The dependence on glutamine for proliferation persists even under hypoxic conditions, against the prediction that limited activity of the respiratory chain should alleviate the need for anaplerosis. Cells cultured under hypoxia took up glutamine at higher rates than under normoxia and use it for lipid synthesis.
