Caption: Glycine crystals. Polarized light micrograph of crystals of glycine, the simplest of the amino acids. Glycine is a neurotransmitter. It is important in metabolism because it contributes carbon atoms in the formation of the blood pigments. Glycine is also used in the synthesis of adenine and guanine, two of the nucleic acids. Magnification: x100 when printed at 10 centimetres tall.
