Nature's solution to age-old chemical paradox provides clues to health and disease Even small errors made by cells during protein production can have profound disease effects, and nature has developed ways to uncover these mistakes and correct them. Though in the case of one essential protein building block"”the amino acid alanine"”nature has been extra careful, developing not one, but two checkpoints in her effort to make sure that this component is used correctly. Now,...

U.S. space agency scientists say they've found glycine, a basic building block of life, in samples of comet Wild 2 returned by NASA's Stardust spacecraft. Glycine is an amino acid used by living organisms to make proteins, and this is the first time an amino acid has been found in a comet, said Jamie Elsila of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Our discovery supports the theory that some of life's ingredients formed in space and were delivered to Earth long ago by meteorite...

 Researchers have been seeking a safe and effective way to treat cognitive impairments associated with schizophrenia by enhancing N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptors. Functional deficits in NMDA receptors may contribute to the underlying neurobiology of this disorder. The first generation of studies trying to stimulate NMDA receptors administered large amounts of substances, like glycine or D-serine, which indirectly enhance NMDA receptor function. While there were some...
