In the meantime, pyridoxal-5-phosphate (vitamin B6 or pyridoxin) is needed as a coenzyme for the activities of various enzymes necessary for the conversion of cystine into taurine such as cysteine dioxygenase (CD), cysteine sulfinic acid decarboxylase (CSAD), etc.

However, as the activities of cysteine dioxygenase (CD) and cysteine sulfinic acid decarboxylase (CSAD), which are enzymes involved in taurine synthesis, are too low to trigger taurine biosynthesis in the human body (Rigo and Senterre, 1977; Sturman and Hayes, 1980), taurine must be supplied by outside sources.
