Taurine and Hypotaurine Biosynthesis
Last Updated: 2019-08-14
The biosynthesis of taurine and hypotaurine is processed by the same protein, glutamate decarboxylase. Hypotaurine is produced by 3-sulfino-L-alanine reacting with glutamate decarboxylase resulting in the release of carbon dioxide and hypotaurine. Taurine is produced by L-cysteate reacting with a glutamate decarboxylase resulting in the release of Taurine and carbon dioxide

Highlighted elements will appear in red.
Enter relative concentration values (without units). Elements will be highlighted in a color gradient where red = lowest concentration and green = highest concentration. For the best results, view the pathway in Black and White.
