To evaluate the effect of bile acid structure on total protein secretion and composition, 4 different bile acids, deoxycholic acid, chenodeoxycholic acid, cholic acid and ursodeoxycholic acid, in order of decreasing hydrophobicity, were infused intraduodenally in 5 cholecystectomized T-tube patients with interrupted enterohepatic circulation, Concentration and composition of biliary proteins were evaluated before and after acute substitution of the endogenous bile acid pool with each bile acid, Total biliary protein concentration and secretion increased progressively with increasing hydrophobicity of the infused bile acid and was highest for deoxycholic acid, followed by chenodeoxycholic acid, cholic acid and ursodeoxycholic acid, A significant increase in the 120 and 150 kDa protein bands on gel-electrophoresis was found after infusion with the more hydrophobic bile acids (deoxycholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid), Quantitative and qualitative changes in biliary proteins, associated with the administration of bile acids that have different physico-chemical structures, may be relevant to the process of cholesterol crystal nucleation and the:pathogenesis of gallstone formation.
