The concentration and uptake of taurine in the umbilical and adult blood platelets were studied. Taurine was the most abundant free amino acid in both umbilical and adult blood platelets. The taurine concentration in umbilical blood platelets (2.30 pmoles/10(4) cells) was significantly lower than that of adult blood platelets (3.27 pmoles/10(4) cells) in contrast to the reverse relationship in taurine concentrations in umbilical and adult blood plasma. No other amino acid showed such… CONTINUE READING
