Characterization of the bile acid transport system in normal and transformed hepatocytes. Photoaffinity labeling of the taurocholate carrier protein.

The taurocholate transport system in normal and transformed hepatocytes has been characterized using transport kinetics and photoaffinity labeling procedures. A photoreactive diazirine derivative of taurocholate, (7,7-azo-3 alpha,12 alpha-dihydroxy-5 beta-cholan-24-oyl)-2-amino [ 1,2-3H ]ethanesulfonic acid (7-ADTC), which has been shown to be a substrate… CONTINUE READING
