Many biological effects of taurine rely upon its cellular concentration, which is primarily controlled by taurine biosynthetic enzymes cysteine dioxygenase (CDO) and cysteine sulfinate decarboxylase (CSD) and taurine transporter (TauT). The cloning of CDO, CSD and TauT in various species provided first-hand information on these proteins, as well as molecular tools to investigate their regulations. CDO upregulation in hepatocytes in response to high sulfur amino acids appears clearly as the most… CONTINUE READING
