Analyses of bile from gallbladders of Arius platystomus, Arius tenuispinis, Pomadasys commersonni and Kishinoella tonggol.
Cholic acid was the major bile acid identified in the bile of Kishinoella tonggol while other bile acids included 3 α,7α,12α-tridydroxy-5α-cholestanoic acid and 3α,7β-cyprinol was present in significant amounts. Expand
Bile Acid Chemistry, Biology, and Therapeutics During the Last 80 Years: Historical Aspects
During the last 80 years there have been extraordinary advances in our knowledge of the chemistry and biology of bile acids. We present here a brief history of the major achievements as we perceiveExpand
Improved Chemical Synthesis, X-Ray Crystallographic Analysis, and NMR Characterization of (22R)-/(22S)-Hydroxy Epimers of Bile Acids
An improved synthesis of the (22R)- and (22S)-epimers of 3 α,7α,12α,22-tetrahydroxy-5β-cholan-24-oic acid and 3α,7β-trihydroxyl groups at C-22 is reported, which are present in a variety of animal biles and previously have been difficult to identify. Expand
Key discoveries in bile acid chemistry and biology and their clinical applications: history of the last eight decades
Bile acids are amphipathic, self-associate in solution, and form mixed micelles with polar lipids, phosphatidylcholine in bile, and fatty acids in intestinal content during triglyceride digestion. Expand
Bile salts of vertebrates: structural variation and possible evolutionary significance[S]
Biliary bile salt composition of 677 vertebrate species showed significant variation between orders but not between families, genera, or species, indicating two evolutionary pathways from C27 bile alcohols to C24 bile acids: a ‘direct’ pathway and an ‘indirect’ pathways with C27bile acids as intermediates.

Bile salts of fishes collected on the Zaïre River Expedition (1974‐5): their chemical nature and its possible significance
Polypterus bile salts are biochemically advanced, but with easily detectable features regarded as relicts from ancestral stock, and their bile acids suggest a degree of activity of intestinal microorganisms during the enterohepatic circulation not previously noticed in fishes. Expand
Chapter 28 Steroids
Publisher Summary Some steroid mixtures can be separated by several chromatographic methods that differ in principle. For example, a chemist isolating a small amount of a new or unknown steroid fromExpand
Phototaxis in Euglena 1: Physiological Basis of Photoreception and Tactic Orientation
It is proposed that the term “photophobic response” be used instead of “phobophototaxis” in this presentation, and will adhere to that terminology throughout this presentation. Expand
[1] Thin-layer chromatography of steroids, sterols, and related compounds
Publisher Summary The simple apparatus and techniques required for the development of thin-layer chromatograms, the high-power of resolution of thin-layer chromatography (TLC), and the possibility ofExpand
Bile salt evolution.
The chemical nature of bile salts in more primitive animals clearly indicates that evolution from C(27), 5alpha-alcohol sulfates to C(24), 5beta-acids has taken place. Expand
