(13) found that [beta]-glucosidase in all cell types is mainly membrane bound and it is stimulated by taurocholate in granulocytes, monocytes and lymphocytes, so they suggested that variations in the total number of leukocytes and in the relative proportion of their various cell types might lead to inconsistent or unreliable values for enzyme activity in the diagnosis of LSD and in carrier detection.

In hepatocytes, Na+-dependent taurocholate cotransporting peptide (NTCP, also known as the sodium/bile acid cotransporter), encoded by SLC10A1 (solute carrier family 10 member1), represents the major conjugated BS uptake system from the blood, contributing 80% of the transport capacity.
