Related Product Information for anti-SLC6A6 antibody

   Taurine (2-aminoethane sulfonic acid), a beta amino acid with a negatively charged sulfonic group is one of the most abundant amino acids in the brain. It is particularly enriched (millimolar conc.) in excitable tissues, particularly those that generate oxidants. Taurine is produced by cysteine metabolism and obtained from diet as well. It is a chemically inert molecule with a long turnover rate. It is not incorporated into proteins. It is also thought to play a major role in osmoregulation. It is also postulated to play a critical role in neurotransmission, neuromodulation, and membrane stabilization, neuronal differentiation, migration, synaptogenesis, and development. Taurine is transported to various target tissues by Na-dependent high affinity uptake system carried out by two distinct membrane transporter proteins: a high affinity (Km 40uM) taurine transporter (TAU-1 or TAUT-1) and a beta-alanine and taurine transporter protein (Km 4.5uM) known as TAUT-2. Both TAUT-1/2 share significant sequence homology with the GABA and glycine transporters that are characterized by the presence of 12 transmembrane domains. Taurine transporters are found in brain, retina and many other tissues.

 NCBI Summary for SLC6A6    Taurine (2-aminoethanesulfonic acid) is a major intracellular amino acid in mammals. It is involved in a number of important physiologic processes, including bile acid conjugation in hepatocytes, modulation of calcium flux and neural excitability, osmoregulation, detoxification, and membrane stabilization. The cells of most organisms respond to hypertonicity by the intracellular accumulation of high concentrations of small organic solutes (osmolytes) that, in contrast to high concentrations of electrolytes, do not perturb the function of macromolecules. The renal medulla is normally the only tissue in mammals that undergoes wide shifts in tonicity. Its hypertonicity when the kidney is excreting a concentrated urine is fundamental to water conservation. The taurine content of the renal medulla of rats infused with 5% NaCl is higher than that in controls, suggesting that taurine behaves as an osmolyte in the renal medulla. Indeed, taurine functions as an osmolyte in Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells. When MDCK cells cultured in isotonic medium are switched to hypertonic medium, their content of taurine doubles through the taking up of taurine from the medium. Taurine transport in these cells is dependent on sodium and chloride ions and is localized primarily in the basolateral plasma membrane (summary by Uchida et al., 1992 [PubMed 1518851]).[supplied by OMIM]
