By default, antechamber uses the GAFF atoms types, which are all lower case.
You will have to load gaff.dat to get access to these.

However, antechamber is not well set up to build amino acid residues; it was
designed only for complete molecules. You are probably better off starting
with SER and converting that to PSER using xleap, and using the upper case
atom types. You will then have some missing parameters, and can use the
suggestions from GAFF to create a frcmod file that has some of the missing

As I have mentioned here before, I keep hoping that some friendly "kinase"
person will contribute some PSER, PTHR files to the contributed parameters
