Taurine is abundantly present in phagocytic cells and provides protection against cytotoxicity caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). The reaction between taurine and HOCl, a toxic product of the myeloperoxidase (MPO) system, generates a more stable and less toxic product, taurine chloramine (TauCl). TauCl has also been shown to inhibit the production of superoxide anion (O2-) and nitric oxide (NO). In this review, we compare the effect of taurine and TauCl on the production of these reactive… CONTINUE READING
