    Farnesoid X receptor (FXR) is a bile acid-activated transcription factor that is a member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily. Fxr-null mice exhibit a phenotype similar to Byler disease, an inherited cholestatic liver disorder. In the liver, activation of FXR induces transcription of...

    The article highlights the results of a study which identified increased hedgehog signaling within the livers of bile duct ligated rats. Sonic hedgehog and Indian hedgehog were found to be increased during bile duct ligation in periportal epithelial cells expressing pancytokeratin, representing...

    The bile acid intermediate 3α,7α,12α-trihydroxy-5β-cholestanoic acid (THCA) is converted to cholic acid exclusively in peroxisomes by the oxidative cleavage of the side chain. To investigate the mechanism by which the biosynthetic intermediates of bile acids are transported into...

    Gap junction channels in the rodent liver are composed of connexin26 (Cx26) and connexin32 (Cx32) proteins. Gap junctional intercellular communication in the mouse liver enhances the effects of hormonal or sympathetic stimulation of glucose release from glycogen stores. To determine whether...
