serine

 [sēr´ēn]
a naturally occurring, nonessential amino acid, used as a dietary supplement, in biological studies and tests, and in culture media.

ser·ine (S, Ser),

(ser'ēn),
2-Amino-3-hydroxypropanoic acid; the l-isomer is one of the amino acids occurring in proteins.

serine

(sĕr′ēn′)
n.
An amino acid, C3H7NO3, that is a common constituent of many proteins.

SERPING1

A gene on chromosome 11q12-q13.1 that encodes a highly glycosylated plasma protein which regulates the complement cascade by inhibiting activated C1r and C1s, thereby preventing complement activation.

Molecular pathology
C1-INH/SERPING1 deficiency is associated with hereditary angioneurotic oedema (HANE).

ser·ine

(S) (sĕr'ēn)
