Taurine , or 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, is an organic compound
that is widely distributed in animal tissues. It is a major
constituent of bile and can be found in the large intestine, and
accounts for up to 0.1% of total human body weight.
Taurine has many fundamental biological roles, such as conjugation
of bile acids, antioxidation, osmoregulation, membrane
stabilization, and modulation of calcium signaling. It is essential
for cardiovascular function, and development and function of
skeletal muscle, the retina, and the central nervous system.
Taurine is unusual among biological molecules in being a sulfonic
acid, while the vast majority of biologically occurring acids
contain the more weakly acidic carboxyl group. While taurine is
sometimes called an amino acid, and indeed is an acid containing an
amino group, it is not an amino acid in the usual biochemical
meaning of the term, which refers to compounds containing both an
amino and a carboxyl group.
