Latest research on Glycine

A non-essential amino acid. It is found primarily in gelatin and silk fibroin and used therapeutically as a nutrient. It is also a fast inhibitory neurotransmitter. [PubChem]

Latest findings

This domain ends in a triple Glycine motif (94GGG96) before entering the protease cap domain (Fig. 1b, represented in red). [source, 2016]
Cross-linking was quenched by addition of 250 mM Glycine and incubation for 15 min at room temperature with slow rocking. [source, 2016]
Arthropod HA receptors are ligand gated Cl- channels (McClintock and Ache, 1989; Hardie, 1989) sharing ∼45% amino acid similarity to the alpha3 subunit of the human Glycine receptor (Zheng et al., 2002), thus the effect of HA on MsHisClB expressing LNs is likely inhibitory in nature. [source, 2016]
The most common type of COL4A1 and COL4A2 mutation in patients are missense mutations in conserved Glycine residues of the Gly-Xaa-Yaa motifs in the triple helical domain5 and so we extended our investigation to an allelic series of mice with disease-relevant mutations. [source, 2016]
Seven of these mutations changed Glycine residues (Col4a1+/; Col4a2+/; Col4a1+/; Col4a1+/; Col4a1+/; Col4a1+/; Col4a1+/) and one mutation changed an amino acid in the NC1 domain of COL4A1 (Col4a1+/)151718. [source, 2016]
Glycerol, Glycine, ammonium persulfate, N, N′-methylene acrylamide, SDS, Tris, EDTA, sucrose and Mannitol were supplied by Amresco (Solon, OH, USA). [source, 2016]
The spore PG crosslinking index (ratio between cross-linked Glycine and total Glycine) was estimated by adapting the 1-fluoro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (FDNB) method originally described for Bacillus19 to Streptomyces (see Methods for details) (Fig. 5f). [source, 2016]
Glycine was added to a final concentration of 100 mM and incubated for 10 min at 4°C with gentle agitation to quench the reaction. [source, 2016]
IPG strips were loaded onto 12% SDS-PAGE gels, running buffer (25 mM Tris, 192 mM Glycine, 0.1% (w/v) SDS) was added, a 200 V constant voltage was applied for 6 h. [source, 2016]
It’s a part of the Glycine cleavage system too. [source, 2016]
