Serine, one of the 20 amino acids, is commonly found in animal proteins. Only the L-stereoisomer appears in nature. It is not essential to the human diet, because it can be synthesized from other metabolites, including glycine. Serine was first obtained from silk protein, a particularly rich source, in 1865. Its name is derived from the Latin for silk, sericum. Serine's structure was established in 1902. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
