Activity of the taurine transporter (TAUT) is regulated by signal transduction in response to diverse stimuli including tumor promoters such as phobol ester. Regulation of the transcription rate of TAUT appears to play an important role in exerting biological roles of taurine in mammalian tissues in adverse environments. Although cDNA of human TAUT has been(More)
Although taurine transporter (TAUT) activity has been known to be regulated by diverse intracellular and extracellular factors involved in the signal transduction pathway, such as protein kinase C, intracellular Ca concentration, and glucocorticoids, little is known concerning the underlying mechanisms. Evidence suggests that such stimulation-mediated(More)
