Ducts in a Row - Let the Bile Flow
Bile acids are diverse molecules that act as physiological detergents to assist bile flow. They are primarily synthesized in the liver from cholesterol and play a major role in the intestinal absorption and transport of lipids, vitamins and minerals. Bile acids further act as signalling molecules that activate nuclear and cell signalling pathways that play a role in regulating lipid, glucose and energy metabolism. As well as, cholesterol homeostasis, calcium mobilisation, cyclic AMP synthesis, protein kinase C activation and systemic endocrine functions.
