Also acts on CoA derivatives of other bile acids. Taurine and 2-fluoro-beta-alanine can act as substrates, but more slowly . The enzyme can also conjugate fatty acids to glycine and can act as a very-long-chain acyl-CoA thioesterase . Bile-acid---amino-acid conjugates serve as detergents in the gastrointestinal tract, solubilizing long chain fatty acids, mono- and diglycerides, fat-soluble vitamins and cholesterol . This is the second enzyme in a two-step process leading to the conjugation of bile acids with amino acids; the first step is the conversion of bile acids into their acyl-CoA thioesters, which is catalysed by EC, cholate---CoA ligase.
