Effect of taurine and taurine and triiodothyronine combination on the development of anuran larvae

Effect of taurine and taurine and triiodothyronine combination on the development of anuran larvae

Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology A: 624: 995-997

Shortening of the tail fin of frog larvae is stimulated in the early stages of development and is retarded in the late stages by taurine. The effect of triiodothyronine T3 on metamorphosis is antagonized by taurine. This antagonistic effect is dose-dependent and statistically significant. Taurine exerts a T3 antagonistic effect in a concentration 103 times higher than litoralon. Taurine influences frog larval development in the same manner as litoralon (.gamma.-L-glutamyl-taurine). Taurine is supposed to be the precursor of litoralon.
