Serine amino acid molecule. Computer illustration showing the structure of a molecule of the amino acid serine (C3.H7.NO3). Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Serine is a non-essential (synthesised by the body) amino acid that plays an important role in a protein synthesis and is formed from another amino acid called glycine. It is important for both mental and physical health as it has a critical role in ensuring that proper functioning of the central nervous system (CNS). It is also involved in the formation of phospholipids required for cell production.
