|Project Period (FY)
2003 – 2004
|Keywords||steroid / basal bile output / hydrogen sulfide / cytathionine γ-lyase / cysteine / propagylglycine / NaHS / biabonate|
1.Peritoneal administration of steroid, 1.6 mg-dexamethazone, significantly increased basal biliary output in perfused rat liver.
2.495±0.299 μL/min/g liver dexamethazone group
2.152±0.083 μL/min/g liver control group
2.Hydrogen sulfide is generated through cysteine metabolism with the catalytic enzyme such as cytathionine γ-lyase (CSE) in the liver. In the rat liver, the content of tissue hydrogen sulfide was around 80 μmol/g tissue, which was firstly measured by our gas-choromatography technique.
3.Propagylglycine (PPG) administrated intraperitoneally, which was a potent inhibitor of CSE, significantly decreased tissue hydrogen sulfide level.
4.The bile output and its constituents were evaluated in both in vivo and ex vivo perfusion system.
(1)In the PPG-treated liver, basal biliary output significantly increased compared with that of control liver.
(2)Supplementation of NaHS in the PPG-treated liver completely inhibited the PPG-effect on bile output in the prefused rat liver.
(3)The elevation of basal bile output in the PPG-treated liver resulted from the increased excretion of biliary bicarbonate. And supplementation of NaHS also inhibited this PPG-effect.
Hydrogen sulfide works as an endogenous gaseous modulator of the basal bile formation in the liver. And it modulates biliary bicarbonate excretion.
