The canalicular membrane contains a bile
salt export pump (BSEP) for monovalent bile salts, a conjugate export pump (MRP2) for divalent bile salts, and various other amphipathic conjugates (Saito et al.
To investigate, Moore and his colleagues fed mice chow that contained a bile component.
The finding indicates that the protein from FXR acts as a bile sensor, he says.
The need for arteriography was an independent risk factor for the development of a bile leak, even if a patient was sent to get angiographic embolization but did not actually receive it, said Dr.
If the patient had a negative HIDA scan, we did not find that the patients developed a bile leak after their initially negative HIDA scan," she said.
IF a bile
duct is found to be blocked, the exact position of the gallstones may be found using a specialised imaging procedure where an endoscope is used to inject a contrast medium into the bile ducts before X-rays are taken.
Obstructive jaundice due to a bile
duct neuroma is a rare yet well-reported entity, with most descriptions in the form of case reports.
culture obtained during ERCP stent replacement identified Candida albicans and oxacillin-resistant S.
It seems that [alpha]-asarone induced clearance of cholesterol from the bloodstream and that the excess of hepatic cholesterol provided by LDL-cholesterol is diverted to bile sterol secretion via a bile
The vitamin D receptor probably evolved as a bile
acid sensor of some kind," says study coauthor David J.
Only one small group of atoms distinguishes it from a bile compound of larval lampreys.
The two other known classes of fish sex pheromones are steroids and prostaglandins, so the lamprey's is the first that's a bile acid.
