Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid formed by bacteria action from cholate. It is usually conjugated with glycine and taurine. It acts as a detergent to solubilize fats for intestinal absorption; it is reabsorbed itself and is used as a choleretic and detergent. Bile acids are physiological detergents that help excretion, absorption, and transport of fats and sterols in the intestine and liver. The unique detergent properties of bile acids are important for the digestion and intestinal absorption of hydrophobic nutrients.
