Glutamic Acid E (Glu)
Chemical Properties: Acidic (Acidic R-group and their amides)
Physical Properties: Polar (charged)

Glutamic acid has one additional methylene group in its side chain than does aspartic acid. The side chain carboxyl of aspartic acid is referred to as the ¥ carboxyl group, while that of glutamic acid is referred to as the ¥ carboxyl group.

The pKa of the ¥ carboxyl group for glutamic acid in a polypeptide is about 4.3, significantly higher than that of aspartic acid. This is due to the inductive effect of the additional methylene group. In some proteins, due to a vitamin K dependent carboxylase, some glutamic acids will be dicarboxylic acids, referred to as ¥ carboxyglutamic acid, that form tight binding sites for calcium ion.

Glutamic acid is interconvertible by transamination with?-ketoglutarate
Glutamic acid and ?-ketoglutarate, an intermediate in the Krebs cycle, are interconvertible by transamination. Glutamic acid can therefore enter the Krebs cycle for energy metabolism, and be converted by the enzyme glutamine synthetase into glutamine, which is one of the key players in nitrogen metabolism.

Biosynthesis of Proline
Note also that glutamic acid is easily converted into proline. First, the ? carboxyl group is reduced to the aldehyde, yielding glutamate semialdehyde. The aldehyde then reacts with the ?-amino group, eliminating water as it forms the Schiff base. In a second reduction step, the Schiff base is reduced, yielding proline.

Glutamic acid amino acid information page
Glutamic acid, a non-essential amino acid and is synthesized from a number of amino acids including ornithine and arginine.

Glutamic acid is required for
It is an important excitatory neurotransmitter, and glutamic acid is also important in the metabolism of sugars and fats.

It helps with the transportation of potassium across the blood-brain barrier, although itself does not pass this barrier that easily. It also shows promise in the future treatment of neurological conditions, ulcers, hypoglycemic come, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, Parkinson's, and mental retardation.

Glutamic acid can be used as fuel in the brain, and can attach itself to nitrogen atoms in the process of forming glutamine, and this action also detoxifies the body of ammonia. This action is the only way in which the brain can be detoxified from ammonia.

The fluid produced by the prostate gland also contains amounts of glutamic acid, and may play a role in the normal function of the prostate.

Deficiency of glutamic acid
None known.

Dosage
The dosage listed is the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), but be aware that this dosage is the minimum that you require per day, to ward off serious deficiency of this particular nutrient. In the therapeutic use of this nutrient, the dosage is usually increased considerably, but the toxicity level must be kept in mind.

Toxicity and symptoms of high intake
High dosages of glutamic acid may include symptoms such as headaches and neurological problems.

Although no major side effects are reported on supplementation of this nutrient, people with kidney or liver disease should not consume high intakes of amino acids without first consulting a medical professional.

People suffering from personality disorders as well as child behavior disorders may find benefit from this nutrient.

Food sources of glutamic acid
Excellent sources of glutamic acid include meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products, as well as some protein-rich plant foods.
  • Protein synthesis.
  • Production of the neurotransmitter Glutamine and GABA.
  • Helps stop alcohol and sugar cravings.
  • Increases energy.
  • Accelerates wound healing and ulcer healing.
  • Detoxifies ammonia in the brain by forming glutamine, which can cross the blood-brain barrier, which Glutamic Acid cannot do.
  • Plays major role in DNA synthesis.
  • Helps speed the healing of ulcers.
  • Considered "brain food".
