The purpose of the present study was to characterize rat organic anion transporter (Oat) 3 (Oat3, Slc22a8) in the efflux transport at the inner blood-retinal barrier (BRB). Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis showed that rat (r) Oat3 mRNA is expressed in retinal vascular endothelial cells (RVECs), but not rOat1 and rOat2 mRNA. The(More)
In the retina, taurine works as an osmolyte to exert a neuroprotective function, and it has been proposed that Müller cells, a major type of retinal glial cells, are involved in the osmolarity regulation of retinal neural cells by controlling the taurine concentration in retinal extracellular fluid (ECF). However, the detailed mechanism of taurine transport(More)
