Regulation of the Taurine Content in Ehrlich Ascites Tumour Cells

Abstract

Taurine plays quantitatively an important role as an organic osmolyte in anisosmotic cell volume regulation in Ehrlich ascites tumour cells3. It is the saturable, pH-sensitive, Na+- and Cl-dependent β-system that accounts for taurine accumulation9,10,15, whereas the swelling-activated taurine channel accounts for net loss of cellular taurine following hypotonic exposure15,16.
