Excorporal bovine eye with stable ERG patterns were used in this study to examine the possible antihypoxic property of the taurine. Taurine (1 mM) given prior to or after the on-set of hypoxia facilitated the retinal recovery as indicated by the B-wave amplitude changes. This observation is consistent with previous observations in hippocampal slice and other tissues which suggests an antihypoxic function of this sulfur-containing amino acid.
