    ..Whether housed in conventional cages or in metabolic cages, wild-type and Atp8b1-deficient mice had similar concentrations in portal blood, suggesting that intestinal bile salt absorption is not altered in Atp8b1-deficient mice. ..

    ..In mice, clearance of ATX is not affected by cholestasis. Small intestinal ATX expression by enteroendocrine cells might represent an important source of cholestasis-induced serum ATX activity in men. ..

    ..Potential mechanisms include increased energy expenditure and changes in expression patterns of key metabolic genes in liver, muscle and adipose tissues. ..

    ..Regulation occurs in opposite directions which may be explained by an incoherent feedforward loop consisting of activation by pCREB and repression by ICER. ..

    ..In conclusion, steatosis in Hrn mice is ameliorated when mice are fed bile salts. This effect is FXR dependent. Triglyceride accumulation in Hrn liver may partly involve impaired VLDL secretion. ..
