Application

Glycine is a non-essential amino acid. It is the simplest of the amino acids and plays various roles in biology. It is structurally unique among the biological amino acids in that it does not have an asymmetric center, and thus is not chiral. It is commonly used as a cell culture media component for the commercial biomanufacture of therapeutic recombinant proteins and monoclonal antibodies.

The clinical associations of glycine receptor antibodies have not yet been described fully. We identified prospectively 52 antibody-positive patients and collated their clinical features, investigations and immunotherapy responses. Serum glycine receptor antibody endpoint titres ranged from 1:20 to 1:60 000.
