Note: Deoxycholic Acid also known as Cholanoic Acid and sometimes sold as Kybella™ or Belkyra™, is one of the secondary bile acids, which are metabolic byproducts of intestinal bacteria and can be used to determine intestinal fat adsorption. Another research application is when a micelle is formed with it, it can used as a mild detergent for the isolation of membrane proteins.
