  Glycine - Amino Acids
Glycine is a nonessential amino acid, which means that it is manufactured from other amino acids in the liver; it does not have to be obtained directly through the diet.
Glycine is also known to serve as a basic nitrogen source for the manufacture of many other amino acids and is useful in the synthesis of hemoglobin, glutathione, DNA and RNA.
Glycine is also used in the biosynthesis of hemoglobin, which is very important in maintenance of proper red blood cell integrity and oxygen carrying capacity.

 7-Chlorokynurenic Acid is a Selective Antagonist at the Glycine Modulatory Site of the N-methyl-D-aspartate Receptor ...
Glycine markedly potentiates N-methyl-D-aspartate (N-Me-D-Asp) responses in mammalian neurons by an action at a modulatory site on the N-Me-D-Asp receptorionophore complex.
In rat cortical slices 7-Cl KYNA (10-100 µ M) noncompetitively inhibited N-Me-D-Asp responses, and this effect could be reversed by the addition of glycine (100 µ M) or D-serine (100 µ M).
These findings indicate that the glycine modulatory site is functional in intact adult tissue and that 7-Cl KYNA should prove to be a selective tool for elucidating the involvement of this site in physiological and pathological events mediated by N-Me-D-Asp receptors.
