Applications
Deoxycholic acid has been used in a modified procedure to recover 40-80% of a protein from a 1 µg/mL solution. It forms complexes with fatty acid. Used as an emulsifying agent in food, a precursor in the synthesis of cortisone, and a gallbladder stimulant. It has been used to study assess how physiological concentrations of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) vs. deoxycholic acid (DCA) affect barrier function in mouse intestinal tissue. Deoxycholic acid has been used in a study to assess a pH-Responsive Mechanism of a Deoxycholic Acid and Folate Co-Modified Chitosan Micelle under Cancerous Environment. It has also been used in a study to investigate dose-dependent anti-inflammatory effect of ursodeoxycholic acid in experimental colitis.
