General description

Sodium glycodeoxycholate is a bile salt that can be used to form biomimicking environments.

Other Notes

Bile Salt


Sodium glycodeoxycholate has been used in a study to develop more similar mimetic intestinal fluids to physiological fluids than those developed by mixed bile salt systems (MBS). It has also been used in a study to investigate Ca2+ buffering capability of bile salt micelles.
