[Relationship between the increase of hepatic D-bifunctional protein activity and bile acid biosynthesis in rats].


OBJECTIVE To determine the physiological role of D-bifunctional protein (DBP) in bile acid biosynthesis through investigating the effect of increasing activity of DBP on bile acid biosynthesis. METHODS Twenty male Wistar rats were divided into two groups: diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) group (n = 10) and control group (n = 10). Serum triglyceride, total… (More)
