Common name: Serine
CSD refcode: LSERIN01
Short description: Serine is one of the 12 non-essential amino acids.
Keyword: Immunoglobulins
Keyword: antibody
CAS registry number: 56-45-1
Layman's explanation: Serine is required for the metabolism of fat, tissue growth, and a healthy immune system. It assists in the production of immunoglobulins and antibodies. Some of its derivatives such as ethanolamine are important components of the phospholipids found in biological membranes. Serine is found in meat and dairy products, wheat gluten, peanuts, and soy products. It is not clear how toxic this substance can be, although it is known that high levels of serine may cause immune suppression and psychological symptoms such as cerebral allergies.
