The effect of taurine on the ATP-dependent mitochondrial swelling that characterizes the activity of mitochondrial ATP-dependent K+ channel and the formation of Ca2+-dependent pores, different in sensitivity to cyclosporin A, has been studied in rat liver mitochondria. It has been shown that taurine in micromolar concentrations (0.5–125 μM) stimulates the energy-dependent swelling of mitochondria. Taurine in physiological concentrations (0.5–20 mM) has no effect on the ATP-dependent swelling… CONTINUE READING
