Glycine in urine

Glycine is an amino acid which is considered together with GABA as the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, especially in the spinal cord, brainstem, and retina.
It is also utilized for the biosynthesis of glutathione, heme, creatine, nucleic acids, and uric acid. And it is a significant component of bile acids secreted into the lumen of the small intestine that is necessary for the digestion of dietary fat and the absorption of long-chain fatty acids.
