MP term:abnormal bile salt homeostasis
Synonym: abnormal bile acid homeostasis
MP id: MP:0005365
Definition: anomaly in the processes involved in the maintenance of an internal equilibrium of the steroid salts derived from cholesterol in the liver, produced as bile acids and secreted in the biliary system as bile salts; these play an important role in the digestion and absorption of fats
