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.
