We examined the effects of feeding deoxycholic acid (1% and 0.4% of diet), alone and in combination with ursodeoxycholic acid, on serum and biliary bile acid concentrations, hepatic morphology, and the activities and steady-state messenger RNA (mRNA) levels of HMG-CoA reductase and cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase in the rat. Feeding 1% deoxycholic acid increased serum bile acid concentrations (cholestasis), produced portal triad inflammation, bile duct proliferation, and severe hepatocyte necrosis with nuclear pleomorphism. Hepatic damage was prevented when ursodeoxycholic acid (1%) was combined with the deoxycholic acid (1%), or when deoxycholic acid intake was reduced to 0.4%. HMG-CoA reductase and cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase activities were markedly inhibited (-56% and -55%, respectively) with either 1% or 0.4% deoxycholic acid. Ursodeoxycholic acid alone produced an insignificant decline in HMG-CoA reductase and cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase activities, and when combined with 1% deoxycholic acid did not lessen the inhibitory effect of the latter. Steady-state mRNA levels increased 20-fold for HMG-CoA reductase and 53-fold for cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase in rats fed 1% deoxycholic acid. In contrast, 0.4% deoxycholic acid decreased HMG-CoA reductase mRNA levels 76%, and cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase mRNA levels 82%. Ursodeoxycholic acid alone did not affect HMG-CoA reductase or cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase steady-state mRNA levels. Steady-state mRNA levels and activities of sterol 27-hydroxylase, a key enzyme in the alternative acidic pathway of bile acid synthesis, did not change with either high or low doses of deoxycholic acid.
