Bilirubin Metabolism

Learning about bilirubin metabolism will help you understand how jaundice develops.

In the break down phase haemoglobin released from the dying RBCs will be broken down into globin and heme. Heme is further broken down into iron and bilirubin. Bilirubun gets attached to serum albumin to be carried to liver.

In the Conjugation phase, bilirubin is separated from albumin and conjugated to glucuronide by glucuronyl transferase so that bilirubin becomes water soluble and can be excreted through kidneys.

In the alimentary phase, the conjugated bilirubin comes out of the bile canaliculi into the intestines and gets converted to urobilinogen and stercobilinogen by the intestinal bacteria.

In the excretion phase, urobilinogen is carried to kidneys for excretion. Some amount of stercobilinogen is absorbed back into the liver. Unabsorbed stercobilinogen gives brown colour to the faeces.

A defect in any phase of bilirubin metabolism can lead to the development jaundice and can be classified under any of four categories mentioned above.
