Glutamine is one of the 20 naturally occuring amino acids. It can be abbreviated to three letters: Gln or one letter: Q. It is a polar molecule meaning that it has an enzymatic role and can bind ligands and other DNA. Polar amino acids are found buried in a protein and can be hydrogen-bonded to other polar amino acids or to the polypeptide backbone [1].
