The human transcription factor AP-1 is a mediator of bile acid-induced liver cell apoptosis

, : The human transcription factor AP-1 is a mediator of bile acid-induced liver cell apoptosis. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 340(3): 800-806

Apoptosis induced by toxic bile acids is thought to contribute to liver injury during cholestasis. The transcription factor AP-1 is involved in the induction of apoptosis depending on stimulus and cell type. It is not known whether the major human toxic bile acid, glycochenodeoxycholic acid (GCDCA), modulates AP-1 in hepatocytes. Our data show that GCDCA (75 mu M 4 h) significantly upregulates cFos and JunB as demonstrated by microarray analysis and real-time PCR in HepG2-Ntcp hepatoma cells. GCDCA (75 mu M, 4 h) also induced AP-1 activation as determined by EMSA that was most distinct after 30 min. In parallel, AP-1 transcriptional activity increased by 40% after exposure to GCDCA. Curcumin, an AP-1 inhibitor, dose-dependently reduced (1-25 mu M) or completely abolished (50 mu M) the apoptotic effect of GCDCA. Thus, GCDCA-induced upregulation of AP-1-dependent genes appears important for the cytotoxicity of this bile acid. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
