Cysteine oxidase and cysteine sulfinic acid decarboxylase in developing rat liver

Summary

The patterns of development of cysteine oxidase (CO) and cysteine sulfinic acid decarboxylase (CSD) in rat liver are not similar. It was observed that CO is not under sex control as CSD is. The results obtained agree with the idea that, in liver, as well as in brain, CSD is the limiting factor for the regulation of taurine biosynthesis.
