Glycine (Gly) is the structurally simplest amino acid and is involved in a variety of metabolic and pathophysiological processes in the body. Creative Proteomics can provide efficient and high-quality glycine identification and quantitative analysis using mass spectrometry-based techniques. Advances in gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) techniques have provided new insights into the functional mechanisms of glycine in pharmaceutical, food, agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry research.
Glycine is associated with the synthesis of proteins and physiologically active molecules related to many important metabolisms. Glycine is involved in signaling as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and plays an important role in immunomodulation, cytoprotection, protection against ischemia-reperfusion injury, reduction of free radical production, reduction of shock injury, and prevention of alcoholic liver disease. In terms of biotransformation, glycine is involved in the synthesis of many important nitrogenous substances, such as purine bases, porphyrin rings of heme and cytochromes, creatine, glutathione and glycocholic acid, in addition to constituting proteins. In addition, glycine can also react with a large number of endogenous substances and drugs to affect the metabolic excretion of related drugs and play a detoxifying role.
Glycineis the most commonly used amino acid in plant uptake studies. It is considered as an important source of plant nitrogen source due to its low relative molecular mass, low carbon to nitrogen ratio, and fast diffusion rate in the soil.
In order to better explore the functional role of glycine in life activities, Creative Proteomics has UPLC-MS/MS analysis system to provide you with glycine content testing service and metabolite analysis during glycine metabolism to accelerate your research progress.
