Glycine amino acid molecule. Computer illustration showing the structure of a molecule of the amino acid glycine (C2.H5.NO2). Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Glycine has several important roles within the body. It is essential for the production of many different acids, including nucleic acids, bile acids, creatine phosphate and porphyrins. It is the smallest and simplest of all proteinogenic amino acids, with only a single hydrogen forming its R-Group or side chain.
