Summary The transport systems involved in hepatobiliary transport have been cloned and characterized at the molecular level and it is becoming clear that mutations and polymorphisms of individual transporter molecules underlie a variety of liver diseases. This book provides surveys on the structure and function of transport molecules involved in hepatobiliary transport, on the role of different bile acids receptors in various organs and their function in health and disease. The book will be of interest for biochemists, structural chemists, biologists and clinicians
