Description

The sterol 12alpha-hydroxylase (CYP8B1) is a key enzyme of the bile acid biosynthetic pathway. It regulates the composition of bile acids in bile, i.e. ratio between cholic acid (CA) and chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA). In similarity with cholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase (CYP7A1), this enzyme is subjected to a negative feedback regulation by bile acids. It has been recently reported that bile acid-activated farnesoid X receptor (FXR) induces the small heterodimer partner (SHP) that interacts with alpha-fetoprotein transcription factor (FTF) and down-regulates CYP7A1 transcription. We studied whether the same mechanism also regulated rat CYP8B1 gene transcription. Feeding rats with CDCA caused a
