Possible Interaction: Taurine and Asymmetric Dimethylarginine

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

However, in the presence of cardiometabolic risk factors, it has been proposed that taurine can increase vascular NO levels by increasing eNOS expression, eNOS phosphorylation on Ser1177, NO bioavailability, the level of antioxidative defense, and the l-arginine/NOS inhibitor asymmetric dimethylarginine ( ADMA) ratio.

Taurine (1 or 5 microg/ml) significantly attenuated the increases in the levels of LDH, ADMA , TNF-alpha and MDA, and the decrease in the level of NO and the activity of DDAH induced by ox-LDL in HUVECs.
Treatment with taurine in vivo (60 or 180 mg/kg) significantly attenuated the inhibition of endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation and the reduced level of NO, and decreased the elevated levels of ADMA , MDA, and TNF-alpha.

In contrast, taurine decreased ADMA levels to the control level both in taurine and taurine + LPS group compared to LPS.
