Extra-metabolic functions of BCAAs in the brain: In the brain, the BCAAs play a key role in maintaining the supply of the neurotransmitter glutamate. To understand this contribution, a brief discussion of the glutamate:glutamine cycle and the astroglial:neuronal nitrogen hypothesis are in order. In the brain, glutamate serves as an excitatory neurotransmitter and is released from the synaptic cleft. After interacting with receptors on the post-synaptic neuron, it is removed from the synapse by astrocytes.
