Glycocholic acid Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionN-Cholylglycine. Bile salt, conjugate of cholate and glycine, usually as the sodium salt. It acts as a detergent to solubilize fats for absorption and is itself absorbed. It is used as a cholagogue and choleretic.
  • Chemical PropertiesOff-White Solid
  • UsesLabelled Glycocholic Acid. The product of conjugation of cholic acid with glycine; chief ingredient of the bile of herbivorous animals. In the weakly alkaline bile fluid glycocholic acid exists as the sodium salt.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A bile acid glycine conjugate having cholic acid as the bile acid component.
  • Purification MethodsGlycocholic acid crystallises from hot water as the sesquihydrate. Dry it at 110o in vacuo. An analytical sample is prepared by suspending the acid (4g) in H2O (400mL) at ~20o, heating to boiling with slow stirring, filtering hot and allowing to cool to ~20o. The acid is filtered off, washed with H2O, dried in air, recrystallised from 5% aqueous EtOH, washed well and dried over P2O5 in a moderate vacuum to constant weight. Recrystallisation from EtOH/EtOAc, and drying, gave the anhydrous acid. [Cortese & Bauman J Am Chem Soc 57 1393 1935, Bergstrom & Norman Acta Chem Scand 7 1126 1953, Beilstein 10 IV 2077.]
