Taurine is involved in various physiological processes, and one of the most abundant amino acids in human. The aim was to investigate the mechanism for intestinal absorption of taurine in vivo using also in vitro mechanistic studies. Taurine absorption was measured in male Sprague‐Dawley rats at 10–997 mg/kg and 1–30 mg/kg for oral and intravenous administration, respectively. Oral absorption was measured in the presence of substrates for the proton‐coupled amino acid transporter, PAT1, that is… 
Influence of single oral administration of taurine-dextrin associate on concentration of amino acids in rat plasma
TLDR
Modified dextrin particles of different sizes, modified with N-stearylglutamic acid, to increase the transport of taurine into the blood plasma of rats indicates efficient transport ofTaurine bydextrin only with particles of 60–90 nm.
In Vivo and In Vitro Study of N-Methyltaurine on Pharmacokinetics and Antimuscle Atrophic Effects in Mice
TLDR
The hypothesis that orally administered NMT partially reverses skeletal muscle atrophy is supported, and the addition of 0.5% NMT to drinking water attenuates dexamethasone-mediated reduction in muscle mass of the treated mice.
Regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism by the pancreatic and extra-pancreatic actions of taurine
TLDR
The mechanisms of action by which Tau may regulate endocrine pancreatic morphofunction, and glucose and lipid homeostasis are discussed.
Taurine: A Regulator of Cellular Redox Homeostasis and Skeletal Muscle Function.
TLDR
Taurine plays an important role in cellular redox homeostasis and skeletal muscle function and some studies demonstrate that taurine enhances the glycogen repletion in the postexercise recovery phase.
Taurine Promotes Milk Synthesis via the GPR87-PI3K-SETD1A Signaling in BMECs.
Taurine, a β-aminosulfonic acid, exerts many cellular physiological functions. It is still unknown whether taurine can regulate milk synthesis in the mammary gland. Therefore, in this study we
Taurine as a Natural Antioxidant: From Direct Antioxidant Effects to Protective Action in Various Toxicological Models
TLDR
The direct antioxidant effect of Tau due to scavenging free radicals is limited and could be expected only in a few mammalian/avian tissues with comparatively high Tau concentrations, and the stabilising effects of Tau on mitochondria, a prime site of free radical formation, are characterised and deserve more attention.
Effects of intact and hydrolysed blue whiting proteins on blood pressure and markers of kidney function in obese Zucker fa/fa rats
TLDR
Blue whiting protein feeding attenuated the blood pressure increase in obese Zucker fa/fa rats, possibly mediated through the renin–angiotensin system and without affecting markers of kidney function.

Absorption, tissue distribution, metabolism and elimination of taurine given orally to rats
TLDR
The data indicate that exogenous taurine rapidly equilibrates with endogenous body pools and that any excess is rapidly eliminated by the kidneys.
Is oral absorption of vigabatrin carrier-mediated?
Pharmacokinetics of Oral Taurine in Healthy Volunteers
TLDR
The pharmacokinetics and effects of oral taurine in healthy men following orally administration in the fasting state in the morning would be useful in the future studies of taurus in pharmacology and nutrition.
In vivo and In vitro Evaluations of Intestinal Gabapentin Absorption: Effect of Dose and Inhibitors on Carrier-Mediated Transport
TLDR
Gabapentin showed dose-dependent oral absorption kinetics and dose-independent disposition kinetics, and for the first time that BCH was capable of inhibiting intestinal absorption of gabapentin in vivo, which may imply that a BCH-sensitive transport-system was involved in the apical and possibly the basolateral transport of gABapentin across the intestinal wall.
Function and expression of the proton‐coupled amino acid transporter PAT1 along the rat gastrointestinal tract: implications for intestinal absorption of gaboxadol
TLDR
The in vivo role of rPAT1 in the absorption of gaboxadol from various intestinal segments obtained from Sprague‐Dawley rats was elucidated to determine the pharmacokinetics of drug compounds.
Taurine uptake across the human intestinal brush-border membrane is via two transporters: H+-coupled PAT1 (SLC36A1) and Na+- and Cl−-dependent TauT (SLC6A6)
TLDR
This study is the first to demonstrate both taurine uptake via PAT2 and functional coexpression of PAT1 and TauT at the apical membrane of the human intestinal epithelium.
H+/amino acid transporter 1 (PAT1) is the imino acid carrier: An intestinal nutrient/drug transporter in human and rat.
TLDR
The identification in intact epithelia of a cooperative functional relationship between PAT1 (H(+ /amino acid symport) and NHE3 (N(+) /H(+) exchange) explains the apparent Na + dependence of the imino acid carrier in studies with mammalian intestine.
Intestinal absorption of the antiepileptic drug substance vigabatrin is altered by infant formula in vitro and in vivo.
TLDR
Experimental evidence is provided for an in vivo role of PAT1 in the intestinal absorption of vigabatrin possibly via PAT1 after oral coadministration to male Sprague–Dawley rats using acetaminophen as a marker for gastric emptying.
Pharmacokinetic aspects of the anti-epileptic drug substance vigabatrin: focus on transporter interactions.
TLDR
The transporter(s) involved in the intestinal absorption of vigabatrin in vitro and in vivo are discussed in detail and special focus is on the contribution of the proton-coupled amino acid transporter 1 (PAT1) for intestinal vigab atrin absorption.
High- and low-affinity transport of L-leucine and L-DOPA by the hetero amino acid exchangers LAT1 and LAT2 in LLC-PK1 renal cells.
TLDR
It is concluded that LLC-PK1 cells express both LAT1 and LAT2 transcripts and transport L-[14C]leucine through the Na+-independent pH-insensitive and high-affinity LAT2 transporter and a minor component through a Na-dependent transporter.
