[Biologic and physiologic role of taurine and its derivates].

Abstract

Taurine is ubiquitous in nature but its distribution and amount differs among biological organisms. Its role as an antioxidant and osmoregulator has been recently recognized. Synthesis and transport of taurine may be different among species with implications on the role of taurine in normal physiologic processes and pathologic conditions.
