The present study aimed to isolate an optimal lactic acid bacterial strain from the feces of healthy giant pandas. The strain exhibited good stability at low pH and high bile salt concentrations, activity against pathogens relevant to pandas, and antibiotic susceptibility. In the current study, 25 isolates were obtained from de Man, Rogosa, and Sharpe agar. Two (E21 and G83) and eight (E1, E2, E16, E18, E21, E69, E70, and G83) isolates demonstrated good performance at pH 2.0 and bile 2% (w/v), respectively...

Adaptation to bile is the ability to endure the lethal effects of bile salts after growth on sublethal concentrations. Surveys of adaptation to bile in Salmonella enterica ser. Tyhimurium reveal that active efflux is essential for adaptation while other bacterial functions involved in bile resistance are not. Among S. enterica mutants lacking one or more efflux systems, only strains lacking AcrAB are unable to adapt, thus revealing an essential role for AcrAB. Transcription of the acrAB operon is upregulated in the presence of a sublethal concentration of sodium deoxycholate (DOC) while other efflux loci are either weakly upregulated or irresponsive...

Surfactant-based intestinal permeation enhancers (PEs) are constituents of several oral macromolecule formulations in clinical trials. This study examined the interaction of a test panel of surfactant-based PEs with isolated rat colonic mucosae mounted in Ussing chambers in an attempt to determine if increases in transepithelial permeability can be separated from induction of mucosal perturbation. The aim was to assess the effects of PEs on (i) apparent permeability coefficient (Papp) of [14C]-mannitol on (ii) histology score and (iii) short-circuit current (ΔIsc) responses to a cholinomimetic (carbachol, CCh)...

A new in vitro method was developed to determine the bile tolerance of potentially probiotic lactobacilli. The overnight culture of various lactobacilli strains was inoculated into sterile, half-strength MRS broth supplemented with and without 0.3% (wt/vol) oxgall, buffered with 0.1 M sodium phosphate buffer at a final pH of 7.3, and incubated at 37 °C for 12 h under anaerobic conditions. The bile tolerance ability of the lactobacilli strains was expressed as the percentage of the propagation generations of the bacterial cells in the presence of oxgall to those in the absence of oxgall...

Understanding liver exposure of hepatic transporter substrates in clinical studies is often critical as it typically governs pharmacodynamics, drug-drug interactions, and toxicity for certain drugs. However, this is a challenging task since there is currently no easy method to directly measure drug concentration in the human liver. Using bosentan as an example, a new approach has been demonstrated to estimate liver exposure based on observed systemic pharmacokinetics from clinical studies using physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modeling...

Bile Salt Hydrolase (BSH), a member of Cholylglycine hydrolase family, catalyses the de-conjugation of bile acids and is evolutionarily related to penicillin V acylase (PVA) that hydrolyses a different substrate such as penicillin V. We report the three-dimensional structure of a BSH enzyme from the Gram-positive bacteria Enterococcus faecalis (EfBSH) which has manifold higher hydrolase activity compared to other known BSHs and displays unique allosteric catalytic property. The structural analysis revealed reduced secondary structure content compared to other known BSH structures, particularly devoid of an anti-parallel β-sheet in the assembly loop and part of a β-strand is converted to increase the length of a substrate binding loop 2...

In recent decades, our knowledge of bile salts has undergone a vast development, and bile salts are now known not only for their detergent properties that aid in the absorption of dietary lipids but also for their interaction with specific nuclear and membrane receptors. In particular, it has been realized that the response of the farnesoid X receptor (FXR) to bile acids provides a signal bridge between the liver and small intestine, controlling the intracellular levels, biosynthesis, and enterohepatic circulation of bile acids...

Introduction In most cholestatic liver diseases the primary cholestasis-causing lesions are located in the biliary tree and may be of (auto)immune origin. Bile salts are responsible for the secondary toxic consequences. Bile salt and nuclear hormone directed therapies primarily aim at improving this secondary toxic injury. In primary biliary cholangitis, trials show statistically significant responses on biochemical endpoints. Preclinical studies suggest that FXR- and PPAR-agonists, inhibitors of the apical sodium-dependent bile salt transporter (ASBT-inhibitors) and the C23 UDCA derivative nor-UDCA are promising agents for the treatment of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC)...

Many bacteria from different phylogenetic groups are able to degrade eukaryotic steroid compounds, but the underlying metabolic pathways are still not well understood. Novosphingobium sp. strain Chol11 is a steroid-degrading alphaproteobacterium. Its genome sequence reveals that it lacks several genes for steroid degradation known to exist in other model organisms.

Lactic acid bacteria were isolated from fish and evaluated for their γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-producing abilities. Out of thirty-two isolates, Lactobacillus brevis RK03 showed the highest GABA production ability. The effects of various fermentation parameters including initial glutamic acid level, culture temperature, initial pH, and incubation time on GABA production were investigated via a singleparameter optimization strategy. For industrial large-scale production, a low-cost GABA producing medium (GM) broth was developed for fermentation with L...

Gallstone disease is one of the most prevalent and costly gastrointestinal disorders worldwide. Gallstones are formed in the biliary system by cholesterol secretions in bile, which result from excess cholesterol, a deficiency in bile salts or a combination of the two. The present study examined the effects of proteasome inhibition on gallstone formation using the proteasome inhibitors bortezomib (BT) and carfilzomib (CF). C57BL/6J mice were fed a lithogenic diet to generate gallstones and injected with BT or CF for 12 weeks...

J Jeffrey Malatack, Daniel Doyle
Progressive familial cholestasis type 2 is caused by a genetically determined absence or reduction in the activity of the bile salt export pump (BSEP). Reduction or absence of BSEP activity causes a failure of bile salt excretion, leading to accumulation of bile salts in hepatocytes and subsequent hepatic damage. Clinically, patients are jaundiced, suffer from severe intractable pruritus, and evidence progressive liver dysfunction. A low level of serum γ-glutamyl transpeptidase, when associated with the described signs and symptoms, is often an early identifier of this condition...

BACKGROUND: Normothermic machine perfusion (NMP) enables viability assessment of donor livers prior to transplantation. NMP is frequently performed using human blood products including red blood cells (RBC) and fresh frozen plasma (FFP). Our aim was to examine the efficacy of a novel machine perfusion solution based on polymerized bovine hemoglobin HBOC-201. METHODS: Twenty-four livers declined for transplantation were transported using static cold storage. Upon arrival, livers underwent NMP for 6 hours using pressure-controlled portal and arterial perfusion...

An important feature of the intestinal microbiota, particularly in the case of administered probiotic microorganisms, is their resistance to conditions in the gastrointestinal tract, particularly tolerance to and growth in the presence of bile salts. Bacteria can use several defence mechanisms against bile, including special transport mechanisms, the synthesis of various types of surface proteins and fatty acids or the production of exopolysaccharides. The ability to enzymatically hydrolyse bile salts occurs in a variety of bacteria...

Antisense oligonucleotides are metabolized by nucleases and drug interactions with small drug molecules at either the cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme or transporter levels have not been observed to date. Herein, a comprehensive in vitro assessment of the drug-drug interaction (DDI) potential was carried out with four 2'-O-(2-methoxyethyl)-modified antisense oligonucleotides (2'-MOE-ASOs), including a single triantennary N-acetyl galactosamine (GalNAc3)-conjugated ASO. Several investigations to describe the DDI potential of a 2'-MOE-ASO conjugated to a high-affinity ligand for hepatocyte-specific asialoglycoprotein receptors are explored...

Paramphistomosis, caused by Calicophoron daubneyi, is an emerging infection of ruminants throughout Western Europe. Despite its prevalence, many questions remain regarding the basic biology of this parasite and how it interacts with its host. Consequently, there is a need to develop methods to study C. daubneyi in vitro to improve our understanding of rumen fluke biology. Towards this, we aimed to identify a suitable protocol for in vitro excystment of C. daubneyi metacercariae. Six methods that have been used to excyst metacercariae from a number of trematode species were tested with C...
