Research Synopsis

Solute transport from blood to bile is an important function of the liver, with accumulation of (otherwise excreted) endogenous and exogenous solutes in blood being a common feature of cholestasis. The major focus of our research is directed at understanding hormonal regulation of hepatic transport processes in an attempt to provide further insight into the pathophysiology of cholestasis. We are studying the role of phosphoinositide-3-OH kinase, protein kinase B, mitogen activate protein kinase, and protein phosphatases in hepatic bile acid transport from blood to bile.
