- Effect of ursodeoxycholic acid on methionine adenosyltransferase activity and hepatic glutathione metabolism in rats: Rodriguez-Ortigosa CM, Cincu RN, Sanz S, et al., Supplemental Bile Salts: The Good, the Bad Gut 2002;50:701â€“6. Gawrieh, Samer; Koch, Timothy R. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Apr2003, Vol. 98 Issue 4, p934
Both bile salts and glutathione participate in the generation of canalicular bile flow. In this work, Rodriguez-Drtigosa et al. investigated the effect of different bile salts on hepatic glutathione metabolism. Using the isolated and perfused rat liver, the authors studied hepatic glutathione...

- INTESTINAL TRANSPORT OF MONOSACCHARIDE AFTER BILIARY DIVERSION IN THE RAT. Burke, Valerie; Malajczuk, Anne; Gracey, M.; Speed, T. P.; Thornett, M. L. // Australian Journal of Experimental Biology & Medical Science;Jun1978, Vol. 56 Issue 3, p253
The article informs that intestinal transport of monosaccharide after biliary diversion in the rat. Bile salts have a physiological role in intestinal absorption of fat, and changes in the type or amount of intraluminal bile salt result in abnormal absorption of fat, for example, in the...
