  • What are the chemical properties for serine?
  • References are quite essential for at least some of the claims made here, especially with regard to chemical properties, role in diabetes, etc.
Perhaps you could provide some! Slow Graffiti (talk) 05:57, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
  • this article could use some clarification as to what serine and glycine's relation is. in the "occurrence" section it is listed as being synthesized from glycine. then in the "Function -metabolic" section it said to be a precursor for glycine. it seems to imply that both are needed to produce the other. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.230.234.178 (talk) 19:31, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Dietary requirements[edit]

How much serine do humans use each day ? Can the elderly synthesize enough or can they have serine deficiency independent of a protein deficiency ? Can low serine be measured by a blood test ? Rod57 (talk) 12:13, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

I believe the line diagram on the right hand side of the page showing the structure of serine is wrong- it shows serine as having only 2 carbons, not 3. Compare to the adjacent ball and stick model and the line diagrams in the text. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.36.116.158 (talk) 21:58, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Stereoisomers[edit]

The text refers to the L- and D- forms, but one of the diagrams refers to the S- and R- forms. This could do to be clarified. Lavateraguy (talk) 19:34, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Better yet, an can D-serine have it's own page? It has a very different biological role from L-serine--e.g. at the Glutamate NMDA receptor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 169.230.26.146 (talk) 14:22, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
