Separation and identification of N-ethyl-γ-glutamine from Xerocomus badius A derivative of glutamic acid has been found in the non protein nitrogen fraction of the mushroom Xerocomus badius. The compound was isolated by paper partition chromatography and was shown to be N-ethyl-γ-glutamine. The structure was confirmed by comparison with the synthetic compound. Different steps involved in the possible biogenesis of N-ethyl-γ-glutamine have been discussed.
