Glutaminase (EC is a mitochondrial enzyme that hydrolyzes glutamine producing glutamate and ammonia. GLS is one of the two key enzymes including glutamine synthetase that are responsible for glutamine homeostasis. Since glutamine is a major metabolic substrate involved in gluconeogenesis, its homeostasis is tightly controlled. Glutaminase has tissue-specific roles in multiple organs, with the isoform GLS1 being expressed in kidneys and brain, and GLS2 being expressed in the liver. It is involved in maintenance of acid-base homeostasis by producing ammonia during renal acidosis in kidneys and regulation of glutamate, which acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. BioVision’s recombinant GLS1 is catalytic domain of the original GLS1, which shows greater activity and excellent stability.
