BACKGROUND & AIMS Canalicular secretion is rate limiting in overall blood-to-bile transport of bile acids. Studies using transfected cells have implicated the canalicular ecto-adenosine triphosphatase (ecto-ATPase) in adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-dependent bile acid transport. However, the structural features of this ecto-ATPase are not those anticipated… CONTINUE READING
