Clinical Significance

Bile acids are water-soluble and, when ionized, amphipathic end products of cholesterol metabolism formed in the liver.  In their molecular form, they are weak acids, however, after the biosynthesis process, the bile acid molecules are conjugated with glycine and taurine, converting them into strong amino acids before being excreted from the hepatocyte.

The fundamental role of bile acids is to aid in the digestion and absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins in the small intestine.
