Table 5 Co-precipitation of cholesterol with deconjugated bile salt by Lactococcus lactic subsp. lactis

From: In vitro assessment of hypocholesterolemic activity of Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis

Conjugated bile salt Cholesterol precipitated (μg/ml)
Sodium glycocholate (6 mM) 5.53 ± 0.70a
Sodium taurocholate (6 mM) 3.7 ± 0.78b
Sodium glycocholate (2.8 mM) + sodium taurocholate (1.2 mM) 5.2 ± 0.36a
  1. Means in the same column followed by different lowercase letters are significantly different (p < 0.05)
  2. aResults are expressed as the means ± standard error of the means, values are the means of triplicate measurements
  3. bMRS broth supplemented with cholesterol and either sodium glycocholate (6 mM), sodium taurocholate (6 mM), or a mixture of sodium glycocholate (2.8 mM) and sodium taurocholate (1.2 mM)
