Tanshinone IIA prevents rifampicin‐induced liver injury by regulating BSEP/NTCP expression via epigenetic activation of NRF2
Rifampicin (RFP)‐induced cholestatic liver injury is characterized by impaired hepatic bile acid (BA) transport. Bile salt efflux pump (BSEP) and Na+/taurocholate cotransporter (NTCP) are the majorExpand
