The intracellular level of taurine is maintained both by the taurine transporter (TAUT) and by endogenous synthesis from Met and Cys. We investigated in the present study the regulation of TAUT and of cysteine dioxygenase (CDO), one of the major taurine biosynthetic enzymes, in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. The TAUT activity, expression of TAUT and CDO mRNA were(More)
A new human cell line, SP-49, was established from the peripheral blood of a patient with leukemic conversion of diffuse lymphoma, medium-sized cell type. SP-49 cells were shown to have intracytoplasmic and surface immunoglobulin and Leu-12 antigen, but were negative for Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen. Chromosome analysis demonstrated that SP-49 had(More)
