We consider the generalized Gagliardo-Nirenberg inequality in ℝn in the homogeneous Sobolev space Hs, rn with the critical differential order s = n/r, which describes the embedding such as Lpn∩ Hn/r,rn Lqn for all q with p q < ∞, where 1 < p < ∞ and 1 < r < ∞. We establish the optimal growth rate as q → ∞ of this embedding constant. In particular, we realize the limiting end-point r = ∞ as the space of BMO in such a way that ||u|| LqnCnq||u||L pnp}{q}}||u||BMO1p}{q}} with the constant C n depending only on n. As an application, we make it clear that the well known John-Nirenberg inequality is a consequence of our estimate. Furthermore, it is clarified that the L -bound is established by means of the BMO-norm and the logarithm of the Hs, r -norm with s > n/r, which may be regarded as a generalization of the Brezis-Gallouet- Wainger inequality.
