Regarding that ratio, significant differences could also be observed between the 'large adenoma' group (>5mm) and the 'small adenoma' group (18). e. e. in cancer promotion. They do not seem to playa role in the formation of small adenomas. An enzyme, the 7-dehydroxylase, produced by gut bacteria, is responsible for the formation in the colon of both lithocholic acid and deoxycholic acid.
