Pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α and IL-1β increase kidney-type mitochondrial glutaminase in the cytosol of neurons and TNF-α may further release glutaminase to the extracellular space. Consequently, intracellular and extracellular glutamate levels increase in neurons during inflammation. The excess levels of glutamate in the extracellular space may induce neuronal injury and death. Therefore, neuronal glutaminase is a potential component of neurotoxicity during inflammation.
