Effects of phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase on phospholipid composition, microvillus formation and bile salt resistance in LLC-PK1 cells.


Bile salts are potent detergents and can disrupt cellular membranes, which causes cholestasis and hepatocellular injury. However, the mechanism for the resistance of the canalicular membrane against bile salts is not clear. Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) is converted to phosphatidylcholine (PC) in the liver by phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase… (More)
