Tauro-3β,5α,6β-trihydroxycholanoic acid

Cholanic acid-3β,5α,6β-triol N-(2-sulphoethyl)-amide, sodium salt

Tauro-3β,5a,6β-Trihydroxycholanoic Acid is a bile acid (BA) that has a role of a human metabolite.

The compound is a derivative from the BA cholanoic acid (cholanic acid / cholan-24-oic acid) with hydroxy substituents at positions 3, 5, and 6. It’s also a tauro-conjugate of cholanoic acid. It derives from the biochemical process of conjugation between cholanic acid and the nonessential amino acid taurine. Tauro-3β,5a,6β-Trihydroxycholanoic Acid that is obtained as a result is ionized and has a higher water solubility than either parent compound.

As a BA, Tauro-3β,5a,6β-Trihydroxycholanoic Acid has numerous important effects in the human body. BAs aid the digestion, absorption, and transport of fats, sterols, fat-soluble vitamins, dietary hydrophobic nutrients, and other BAs. They are also known to have the function of signaling molecules in a range of crucial metabolic pathways. On the other hand, when BAs levels are high, the detergents become toxic to cells and tissues. They cause membrane, organelles, and DNA damage, which leads to a series of pathological responses and eventually clinically developed conditions.

Tauro-3β,5a,6β-Trihydroxycholanoic Acid is a compound suitable to investigate BAs and their relatives’ behavior and correlation with liver, gallbladder, and bile ducts diseases, and in healthy organisms to make discoveries and proofs of BAs roles in these processes.
