Role of taurine in osmoregulation in brain cells: Mechanisms and functional implications

Abstract

All cells including neurons and glial cells are able to keep their volume within a very limited range. The volume regulatory mechanism involves changes in the concentration of osmolytes of which taurine appears to be of particular importance in brain cells. Swelling in brain cells may occur as a result of depolarization or small fluctuations in osmolarity… (More)
