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

  • IBAT: ileal bile acid transporter; CFTR: cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator.

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