Glutamine

Today in our neuroscience lecture the prof said that peptides and other
molecules which act as neurotransmitters couldn't get past the blood-
brain barrier and had to be manufactured within the CNS.  Several of us
wondered whether this means that all the glutamine within the CNS is
made within the CNS [by transamination?]... does anyone have any data
on this?

Thanks in advance.
