Taurine (2-aminoethanesulfonic acid) is an enigmatic compound abounding in animal tissues. it truly is current at quite excessive concentrations in all electrically excitable tissues reminiscent of mind, sensory organs, center, and muscle, and in sure endocrine glands. a few of its physiological capabilities are already verified, for instance as a necessary nutrient in the course of improvement and as a neuromodulator or osmolyte, however the mobile mechanisms are nonetheless in most cases a question of conjecture. additionally, there are many different putative services of taurine much less renowned at this time.
Taurine 7 contains the complaints of the sixteenth overseas Taurine assembly. This assembly is a multidisciplinary symposium, with members providing diverse fields of organic technology. This quantity specializes in all facets of taurine study from immunology and its impression on wellbeing and fitness to chemistry and biochemistry, together with destiny medical applications.
