Ileal bile acid transporter

Basic Info

Apical sodium-dependent bile acid transporter, ASBT, IBAT
+ [10]
Plays a critical role in the sodium-dependent reabsorption of bile acids from the lumen of the small intestine (PubMed:7592981, PubMed:9458785, PubMed:9856990). Transports various bile acids, unconjugated or conjugated, such as cholate and taurocholate (PubMed:7592981, PubMed:9458785, PubMed:9856990). Also responsible for bile acid transport in the renal proximal tubules, a salvage mechanism that helps conserve bile acids (Probable). Works collaboratively with the Na(+)-taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide (NTCP), the organic solute transporter (OST), and the bile salt export pump (BSEP), to ensure efficacious biological recycling of bile acids during enterohepatic circulation (PubMed:33222321).
