Taurine transporter is expressed in osteoblasts


Taurine influences bone metabolism and is taken up by cells via a specific transport system, the taurine transporter (TAUT). We report a link between taurine and bone homeostasis by demonstrating transcription and translation of TAUT in bone-forming cells. TAUT was expressed in human primary osteoblasts, the human osteosarcoma osteoblast-like cell line MG63… (More)
