Stratum corneum lipid removal by surfactants: relation to in vivo irritation.
The relationship between the in vivo irritation potential of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and linear alkyl benzene sulfonate (LAS) and the ability of these two surfactants to remove lipid from theExpand

Subcellular distribution of bile acids, bile salts, and taurocholate binding sites in rat liver.
We have quantitated bile acids and their conjugates in rat liver using high-pressure liquid chromatography. Over 95% of the hepatic bile acid pool in rat liver homogenates is present as taurocholateExpand

Human cutaneous response to a mixed surfactant system: role of solution phenomena in controlling surfactant irritation.
Exposure of the skin to surfactant-based products can result in irritation. To control this effect researchers are probing mechanisms of surfactant action. In vitro studies show that mixingExpand

Self-perceived sensory responses to soap and synthetic detergent bars correlate with clinical signs of irritation.
BACKGROUND Epidemiologic studies indicate that after using soaps and other personal care products, many consumers experience irritation. In 50% of the cases the feelings of skin dryness, itching, andExpand

Teichoic acid and lipid metabolism during sporulation of Bacillus megaterium KM.
The biochemistry of teichoic acid and lipid metabolism has been studied during sporulation of Bacillus megaterium KM. Measurements of cell-wall and membrane teichoic acid have shown that netExpand

Two distinct mechanisms for taurocholate uptake in subcellular fractions from rat liver.
As part of the enterohepatic circulation, hepatocytes take up bile acids from the intestines via the hepatic portal blood using a sodium-dependent carrier mechanism and resecrete the bile acids intoExpand

Ionic requirements for taurocholate transport in rat liver plasma membrane vesicles
As part of the enterohepatic circulation, taurocholate is taken up by hepatocytes by a Na+-gradient-dependent, carrier-mediated process. The dependence of taurocholate uptake on the presence of a Na+Expand

Isolation and characterization of coated vesicles from rat liver.
Publisher Summary This chapter describes the isolation of coated vesicles from rat liver using anion-exchange chromatography. The coated vesicles derived from liver by anion-exchange chromatographyExpand

Characterization of polyisoprenyl phosphate phosphatase activity in rat liver.
The polyisoprenyl phosphate dephosphorylating activity of rat liver has been investigated with regard to substrate specificity, subcellular distribution, and transmembrane orientation. Total liverExpand
