An important function of the β-amino acid, taurine, is the regulation of oxidative stress. However, taurine is neither a… Expand Taurine is one of the most abundant free amino acids in the brain. In a number of studies, taurine has been reported to activate… Expand This chapter reports present knowledge on the properties of mice with disrupted gene coding for the taurine transporter (taut… Expand Taurine transport undergoes an adaptive response to changes in taurine availability. Unlike most amino acids, taurine is not… Expand Taurine is the abundant sulfur‐containing β‐amino acid in brain where it exerts a neuroprotective effect. Although it is known… Expand Taurine is an essential amino acid during fetal life and appears to be vital for the growth of the fetus and for the development… Expand A cDNA clone highly related to the rat brain taurine transporter has been isolated from a human placental cDNA library… Expand Using a clonal growth assay, we demonstrated that taurine, a nonperturbing osmolyte accumulated in kidney medulla, brain, and… Expand The taurine transport of flounder erythrocytes is associated with a cell volume regulation in anisosmotic media. An osmolality… Expand One non‐saturable and two saturable transport systems were demonstrated for taurine in rat brain slices. One of the saturable… Expand
