Applications
Deoxycholic acid has been used in a modified procedure to recover 40-80% of a protein from a 1 µg/mL solution. It forms complexes with fatty acid. Used as an emulsifying agent in food, a precursor in the synthesis of cortisone, and a gallbladder stimulant. It has been used to study assess how physiological concentrations of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) vs. deoxycholic acid (DCA) affect barrier function in mouse intestinal tissue. Deoxycholic acid has been used in a study to assess a pH-Responsive Mechanism of a Deoxycholic Acid and Folate Co-Modified Chitosan Micelle under Cancerous Environment. It has also been used in a study to investigate dose-dependent anti-inflammatory effect of ursodeoxycholic acid in experimental colitis.

Solubility
The free acid is soluble at 0.044 g/L in water at 20°C. Solubility in methanol is almost transparent.

Notes
Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition.
