In enzymology, a taurine-transporting ATPase (EC 18.104.22.168) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
ATP + H2
O + taurineout
ADP + phosphate + taurinein
The 3 substrates of this enzyme are ATP, H2O, and taurine, whereas its 3 products are ADP, phosphate, and taurine.
This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on acid anhydrides to catalyse transmembrane movement of substances. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP phosphohydrolase (taurine-importing).
