The metabolism of taurine to isethionate.
Abstract The biosynthesis of isethionate from taurine in mammalian tissue has been reexamined. In vivo metabolism of taurine to isethionate was demonstrated but it was shown that a number ofExpand

The oxidation of hypotaurine to taurine: bis-aminoethyl-alpha-disulfone, a metabolic intermediate in mammalian tissue.
The primary mammalian metabolic pathway leading to taurine is generally recognized as beginning with the oxidation of cysteine to cysteine sulfinate via cysteine dioxygenase (19). This rate limitingExpand

Identification of mammalian aspartate-4-decarboxylase.
Several animal tissues were examined for aspartate-4-decarboxylase (EC 4.1.1.12) activity. Highest activity was seen in murine livers, in rodent livers, and in rodent kidneys. The rat liver enzymeExpand
