(22R and 22S)-3 alpha, 7 alpha, 22-trihydroxy-5 beta-cholan-24-oic acids were synthesized, starting from chenodeoxycholic acid, in order to establish the chemical structure of haemulcholic acid, which has been found in certain fish as the major bile component. Oxidative decarboxylation of diformoxylated chenodeoxycholic acid with lead tetraacetate yielded 24-nor-5 beta-chol-22-ene-3 alpha, 7 alpha-diol, which was hydroxylated to form a mixture of (22R and 22S)-24-nor-5 beta-cholane-3 alpha, 7… Expand

TLDR
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
Synthesis of α,β-unsaturated C24 bile acids
Abstract Synthesis of the α , β -unsaturated analogues of cholic acid, deoxycholic acid, chenodeoxycholic acid, and ursodeoxycholic acid is described. Each common bile acid was converted to theExpand
Bile alcohols function as the ligands of membrane-type bile acid-activated G protein-coupled receptor
TLDR
In a cell-based reporter assay and a cAMP production assay performed in vitro, most bile alcohols with a side chain containing hydroxyl group(s) were highly efficacious agonists for TGR5 comparable to its most potent ligand in the naturally occurring bile acid, lithocholic acid. Expand
Novel pathways of bile acid metabolism involving CYP3A4.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CYP3A4 can metabolise lithocholic acid into 3-dehydrolithocholics acid, a potent activator of the nuclear receptors, pregnane X receptor and 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 receptor, which are known to regulate the expression of CYP 3A4, and provides a feed-forward metabolism of toxic bile acid that may be of importance in maintaining bile acids homeostasis.

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
Chapter 11 Metabolism of bile acids in liver and extrahepatic tissues
TLDR
This chapter discusses the metabolism of bile acids in liver and extrahepatic tissues and how these constituents are absorbed passively from all sites of the gastrointestinal tract, pass through the duodenum–jejunum, and are largely absorbed in the ileum by active transport mechanism. Expand
Key discoveries in bile acid chemistry and biology and their clinical applications: history of the last eight decades
TLDR
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
