Taurine Concentrations in Human Heart — A Retrospective Analysis
Taurine is present in human heart in high concentrations and there is evidence that it is involved in the regulation of myocardial performance. However, there exists only scarce information about the physiological functions of taurine. Taurine analysis in human myocardium was performed in the present study to examine for a correlation with previous severe disease and to get further insight into its functional role.
