How can you use “ileal” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • In summary, in the widely studied cftr knockout mouse model (which clearly demonstrates intestinal pathology), the apical sodium dependent ileal bile acid transporter is expressed and functions at higher levels than in wild-type animals, with intermediate levels of IBAT expression and function in heterozygous cftr (+/-) mice.

  • In contrast, cftr (-/-) mice may experience bile acid malabsorption even though their ileal mucosal cells express four-fold more IBAT transporters than normal cells.

  • found significant decreases in active bile acid uptake when examining ileal brush border membrane vesicles [ 11 ] and proposed that altered viscosity of the ileal mucus was likely not a factor in ileal bile acid malabsorption associated with cystic fibrosis.

  • Based on this evidence, we postulate that the more viscous mucus layer in the ileal crypts of individuals with cystic fibrosis limits access of luminal bile acids and micelles to the ileal crypt cells.

  • Based on these findings, a defect in ileal bile acid transport mechanisms in cystic fibrosis has been suspected.
