The existence of transporters for bile acids (BA) in liver and intestine has been well documented, but information is still needed as to their respective transport capacity. In the present investigation, we compared the hepatic and intestinal transport rates for BA, using perfused livers and intestines. The livers and intestines were separately perfused and dose-response curves (0.25-10 mM) for tauroursodeoxycholate, taurocholate and taurodeoxycholate were obtained. The intestinal and… CONTINUE READING
