Taurine Induces Proliferation of Neural Stem Cells and Synapse Development in the Developing Mouse Brain


Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid present in high concentrations in mammalian tissues. It has been implicated in several processes involving brain development and neurotransmission. However, the role of taurine in hippocampal neurogenesis during brain development is still unknown. Here we show that taurine regulates neural progenitor cell (NPC… (More)
