Mechanisms of Sinusoidal Bile Acid Transport
During the past decade, the Na+-dependence of hepatic conjugated bile acid uptake has been well established. Initial studies in the isolated perfused rat liver, isolated rat hepatocytes, and hepatocyte monolayer culture first demonstrated Na+-dependence and ouabain inhibition of taurocholate uptake (for a review, see Blitzer and Boyer, 1982).
