Description

Glycine is the simplest amino acid and is amphoteric. It can either be protonating or protonated, depending on pH. Because of this property, it is used for buffers.

Glycine is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in CNS and modulates excitatory neurotransmission by potentiating the action of glutamate at N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. In addition, it has been shown that glycine modulates macrophage effector functions implicated in CNS inflammation and in other related inflammatory conditions.

 

Applications

• Used in preparation of electrophoresis buffers

• Cell culture

• Study of neurotransmitters

USE
Glycine is widely used as a buffer for a variety of immunological applications. It is frequently used in the preparation of TG Buffers (Tris-Glycine; sc-296648) where the buffer is used as a running and/or transfer buffer for polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and western blotting. Glycine (100 mM, pH 2.0-2.5; sc-295018) is also used as an eluent in column chromatography. Glycine has been reported for use in the enzymatic determination of lactate using lactic dehydrogenase.
