def: "The process in which bile acids are covalently linked to taurine or glycine." [PMID:1094911, PMID:708413]
comment: The bile acid is first activated using CoA by cholate-CoA ligase activity(GO:0047747), then conjugated to taurine or glycine by glycine N-choloyltransferase activity (GO:0047963; appears to use either glycine or taurine).
