Mixture of free and conjugated bile acids, minimum 50% bile acids


10, 25, 100 g in poly bottle


Bile from bovine and ovine can be used in bacteriological research to investigate bile salt adaptation of bacteria such as Lactobacillus.

Biochem/physiol Actions

The formation of bile acids from cholesterol is critical to cholesterol homeostasis. Subsequently, bile acids and alcohols function in the absorption of lipids from the GI tract. The class consists of a complex mixture of similar compounds, presenting a difficult analytical problem; LC/MS and GC/MS have been used successfully to elucidate such mixtures.
