Sodium deoxycholate

≥97% (titration)

Synonym: 3α,12α-Dihydroxy-5β-cholanic acid sodium salt, 7-Deoxycholic acid sodium salt, Desoxycholic acid sodium salt



Biochem/physiol Actions

Solubilizes fats for absorption in the intestines.


10, 25, 100, 500 g in poly bottle


Sodium deoxycholate has been used in the lysis buffer prepared for brown adipose tissue. It has been used in the decellularization of aortic valvular conduit.

General description

Sodium deoxycholate is a bile salt and an ionic detergent. Bile salts work along with lipids/fats/cholesterol and form mixed micelles in the intestine. These micelles help in fat digestion and absorption through the intestinal wall.

Bile Acids

The liver excretes excess cholesterol in the form of bile acids. Bile acids serve two purposes: to remove unwanted cholesterol from the body and to aid in lipid digestion in the intestine. Bile acids...

Detergent Properties and Applications

The key to detergent function is an amphipathic structure. All detergents are characterized as containing a hydrophilic “head” region and a hydrophobic “tail” region (see Figure 1).
