Taurine protects against carbon tetrachloride toxicity in the cultured neurons and in vivo.


Carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) has been found to induce cellular damage by generating oxygen free radicals. A study was carried out to investigate the effects of taurine (extracted from Pegasus laternarius Cuvier) on CCl4 intoxicated cultured neurons. CCl4 application (0.4 mmol x l(-1), 0.8 mmol x l( -1), 1.2 mmol x l (-1) and 1.6 mmol x l(-1 )) increased the… (More)
