Aplicación

Glycine has been used in whole-cell patch clamp recording to measure inward NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) currents. It has also been used as a model organic system in crystallography to demonstrate a novel acoustic nebulization platform.

Acciones bioquímicas o fisiológicas

Glycine is a non-essential amino acid. Influx of calcium through the cell membrane is mediated by glycine-gated channel. Glycine participates in the synthesis of porphyrins, purine and serine. It also serves as a competitive agonist for glutamate in binding to the NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptors. Glycine synthesis might be increased in rapidly proliferating cancer cells, due to increased demand for the amino acid.
Inhibitory neurotransmitter in spinal cord, allosteric regulator of NMDA receptors.
