Sodium taurodeoxycholate is a bile salt that acts as a detergent and as a differentiating tool. Bile salts break down bacteria that are not native to gut, while enteric bacteria are resistant to these bactericidal effects. It can also be used for isolation of membrane proteins, including inner mitochondrial membrane proteins.
