The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of taurine on human fetal brain neuron cell proliferation and differentiation using a glial-free, pure cerebral neuronal culture grown in a serum-free environment. We found that taurine was necessary for neuronal survival and neurite extension. Taurine, on the other hand, has a trophic effect on the human fetal brain cell, promoting both proliferation and differentiation. Results showed that DNA synthesis of the neurons was increased in a… CONTINUE READING
