Is serine hydrophilic or hydrophobic?

It's hydrophilic, due to the hydroxyl functional group in the R group. Though the R group also contains a hydrocarbon group, the hydroxyl group is outermost and thus determines serine's interactions with its environment.


Is OH found in many proteins?

If you mean the hydroxyl functional group (-OH), then only serine and threonine contain it. However, all amino acids contain one or more carboxylic acid (-COOH) functional groups and they all contain OH as part of that functional group, though the carboxylic acid functional group should be considered a single unit.


Is serine polar?

Yes serine is a polar amino acid as it has an hydroxyl group (OH-) attached to the r group.


Why does neostigmine inhibit acetylcholinesterase in a reversible manner?

Neostigmine is a competitive reversible inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase. When the drug interacts with the serine of the enzyme's active site, a nucleophilic substitution reaction takes place where the drug loses a phenol group leading to the formation of a stable intermediate. However, serine then gets capped by a stable urethane group. Hydrolysis then occurs preventing "aging" from happening. The serine will then return to its normal form so this inhibition is reversible.
