Possible Interaction: Potassium and Taurine





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Administration of taurine decreased the potassium‐induced muscle hyperexcitability and favored electrolyte accumulation in dystrophic myotonic muscles.
The stabilizing effect of taurine is discussed in relation to its ability to increase intracellular potassium concentration, membrane conductance, or both.
Annals of neurology  •  1982  |  View Paper
At both high (10 mM) and low (50 microM) substrate concentrations, lowering of apical potassium was associated with decreased transport of taurine across the RPE.

NMDA, NO, high potassium or the hypotonic solution stimulated the release of taurine.

The results demonstrated that the direction and magnitude of taurine transport could be controlled by physiological variations in the extracellular concentration of potassium.

In conclusion, the processing of betaine, taurine , and sorbitol accumulation appeared to be impaired in potassium depletion.

In contrast, a predominant chloride dependent component of the potassium stimulated efflux of taurine is observed and evidence has been provided suggesting that this release is associated with synaptosomal swelling (Sanchez-Olea and Pasantes-Morales, 1990).

These data indicated an association between taurine and potassium balance in cats and suggested that development of taurine depletion and cardiovascular disease may be linked to concurrent potassium depletion.

Taurine added to the incubation medium decreased the postirradiation loss of potassium ions by cells.
