General description

Glycine is synthesized from choline, threonine and serine. It serves as a precursor for porphyrins, purines, glutathione and creatine.


Glycine sodium salt hydrate has been used as a component of buffer for homogenization of whole muscle for protein extraction and in electrophoresis buffer. It has also been used as a neurotransmitter in immunohistochemical staining of Zebrafish spinal cord sections.
Glycine sodium salt hydrate has been used for homogenization of muscle tissue and as a component of buffer for electrophoresis, for analysis of whole muscle proteins obtained from five ariid catfish species: Ariopsis felis, Bagre marinus, Cathorops aguadulce, Cathorops fuerthii and Ariopsis guatemalensis.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glycine is essential for the regulation immune function, metabolism, growth and development. It modulates intracellular Ca2+ levels and cytokines production. A reduction in glycine levels is observed in obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLDs). Glycine is degraded to serine by glycine serine hydroxymethyltransferase 1 in cytoplasm.

Transmitters mediating 'fast' synaptic processes in the vertebrate central nervous system are commonly placed in two separate categories that are believed to exhibit no interaction at the receptor level. The 'inhibitory transmitters' (such as glycine and GABA) are considered to...
