  1. 1. Cytochrome P450 Enzymes in Bile Acid Biosynthesis and Fatty Acid Metabolism Studies on Members of the Porcine CYP4A and CYP8B Subfamilies

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Kerstin Lundell; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biochemistry; cytochrome P450; bile acids; fatty acids; CYP4A; CYP8B; genome; porcine; hyocholic acid; Farmaceutisk biokemi; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical biochemistry; FARMACI Farmaceutisk biokemi; farmaceutisk biokemi; Pharmaceutical Biochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : The present investigation is devoted to studies on porcine members of the cytochrome P450 4A (CYP4A) and CYP8B1 subfamilies, which are involved in bile acid biosynthesis and fatty acid metabolism. Hyocholic acid is considered to fulfil the requirements for trihydroxy bile acids in the domestic pig (Sus scrofa) in the absence of cholic acid. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Use of primary human hepatocytes for the elucidation of bile acid synthesis

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital

    Författare :Ewa CS Ellis; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : In the present investigation we cultured primary human hepatocytes on matrigel under serum-free conditions and studied bile acid formation. The following observations were made: · The major steroid products excreted from primary human hepatocytes into the culture medium were cholic acid, CA (70%) and chenodeoxycholic acid, CDCA (25%) conjugated with glycine or taurine.

  3. 3. Studies of sterol 12alpha-hydroxylase (CYP8B1) : Distribution and role for cholesterol homeostasis and gallstone formation

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Laboratory Medicine

    Författare :Jin Wang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CYP8B1; CY7P7A1; bile acid; cholesterol homeostasis; gallstone; nuclear receptor; cellular distribution; cholesterol hypersecretion; ABCG5 G8; SREBP2; cholesterol absorption; diabetes mellitus; anti-atherogenesis;

    Sammanfattning : Bile acids are essential physiological molecules which carry out multiple functions such as facilitating the absorption of dietary lipids and regulating the metabolism of cholesterol and bile acids. The formation of bile represents the major route for elimination of excess cholesterol, either by conversion of cholesterol into bile acids or excretion of intact cholesterol in mixed micelles.

  4. 4. Studies on the transcriptional regulation of sterol 12alpha-hydroxylase (CYP8B1)

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Laboratory Sciences and Technology

    Författare :Yizeng Yang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bile acids; CYP8B1; CYP7A1; transcription; nuclear receptor; PPAR-alpha; HNF4-alpha; FTF; SREBP; thyroid hormones.;

    Sammanfattning : The conversion of cholesterol into bile acids is mainly via two pathways, which are initiated by CYP7A1 and CYP27A1 respectedly. CYP8B1, a microsomal P450 cytochrome, hydroxylates of the steroid nucleus at the C-12alpha position to form 7alpha, 12alpha-dihydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one, a facultative precursor of CA. LÄS MER
