Part Description

LP15868-0   Stercobilin
Stercobilin is a tetrapyrrolic bile pigment and is one end product of heme catabolism. It is the chemical responsible for the brown color of human fecal materia. Stercobilin (and related urobilin) can be used as a marker for biochemical identification of fecal pollution levels in rivers.

In obstructive jaundice, no bilirubin reaches the small intestine, meaning that there is no formation of stercobilinogen. As a result, no stercobilin is formed. This lack of stercobilin and other bile pigments causes feces to become clay-colored. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
