Glycine is one of the 20 amino acids. It's three letter code is Gly, and it's single letter code is G. It is the simplest amino acid, with a hydrogen atom as a side chain - this means glycine is the only amino acid which does not have a chiral carbon atom , so it does not form stereoisomers therefore will not have L or D configurations.
