Cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase, the rate-determining enzyme in the bile acid biosynthesis pathway, is regulated in a negative feedback manner by hydrophobic bile salts returning to the liver via the portal circulation. The role of cholesterol in the…

Ethanol-inducible cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1) has been shown to be involved in the metabolism of both ethanol and acetaldehyde, Acetaldehyde, produced from ethanol metabolism, is highly reactive and can form various protein adducts, In this study,…

Mitochondrial sterol 27-hydroxylase (CYP27Al) catalyses sterol side-chain oxidation of bile acid synthesis front cholesterol, and the first reaction of the acidic bile acid biosynthetic pathway. Hydrophobic bile acids suppress human CYP27Al gene…

We have previously found that for acetaminophen kinetic differences exist between the hepatic microsomal catalyzed protein binding and cysteine conjugation. We have also observed that the protein binding of acetaminophen is only to intralumenal…

Cholesterol 7-alpha-hydroxylase catalyzes the rate-limiting step in the bile acid biosynthetic pathway. Regulation of this pathway is thought to occur solely as a result of a negative feedback control mechanism that is dependent upon the flux and…

Taurocholate, a relatively hydrophobic bile salt, is a potent down-regulator of HMG-CoA reductase and cholesterol 7-alpha-hydroxylase (C7-alpha-H), the rate-determining enzymes of the cholesterol and bile acid biosynthetic pathways, respectively.…

The present study examines the feedback control governing human cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase mRNA expression in the human hepatoblastoma cell line, Hep G2. Glycochenodeoxycholate (GCDC) and glycodeoxycholate, hydrophobic bile salts, decreased…

Background/Aims: The decrease in cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase induced by intraduodenal infusion of taurocholate in bile fistula vats may be indirect, i.e., mediated through release or absorption of an intestinal factor in response to the presence…

The genetically obese Zucker rat is a widely used model of early-onset obesity. Like obese children, these obese rats are hyperinsulinemic and have low GH secretion. However, data on linear growth and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) levels in…
