Low-dose taurine upregulates taurine transporter expression in acute myocardial ischemia.

Abstract

Taurine exerts a protective effect on cardiomyocytes. The aim of this study was to determine whether the protective effect of taurine is associated with the upregulation of taurine transporter (TAUT) expression in acute myocardial ischemia (AMI). To this end, we investigated TAUT expression in cultured cardiomyocytes exposed to hypoxia as well as in rats… (More)
