We characterized the air-water interfacial properties of four monofluorinated bile acids alone and in binary mixtures with a common lecithin, 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC), using an automated Langmuir-Pockels surface balance. We compared 7alpha-fluoromurocholic acid (FMCA), 7alpha-fluorohyodeoxycholic acid (FHDCA), 6alpha-fluoroursodeoxycholic acid (FUDCA), and 6alpha-fluorochenodeoxycholic acid (FCDCA) with their natural dihydroxy homologs, murocholic acid (MCA…

Perfluoroalkyl bile esters: a new class of efficient gelators of organic and aqueous–organic media

The presence of CO2-philic perfluoroalkyl groups is also expected to enhance their solubility in supercritical CO2 and hence these compounds are promising candidates for making aerogels.

The Effect of Hydroxyl Moieties and Their Oxosubstitution on Bile Acid Association Studied in Floating Monolayers

The results show that the Langmuir trough method is extremely useful in selecting appropriate BA molecules to design drug delivery systems.

Bile acid-surfactant interactions at the liquid crystal/aqueous interface.

The results clearly demonstrate that the sensitivity of 5PCH-5CB mixtures for monitoring the interaction between CA and SDS at the LC/aqueous interface can be increased by one order of magnitude, compared to 5CB.

Novel potent and selective bile acid derivatives as TGR5 agonists: biological screening, structure-activity relationships, and molecular modeling studies.

The biological screening of a collection of natural occurring bile acids, bile acid derivatives, and some steroid hormones has resulted in the discovery of new potent and selective T GR5 ligands and a binary classification model of TGR5 activity is developed.

1H,13C, 19F NMR, and ESI mass spectral characterization of two geminal difluorosteroids

Two geminal difluorosteroids have been prepared from corresponding ketosteroids with DAST treatment in moderate yields and have been characterized by 1H, 13C, 19F NMR, and ESI mass spectral techniques.

Porcine bile acids promote the utilization of fat and vitamin A under low-fat diets

Fat-soluble vitamin malabsorption may occur due to low dietary fat content, even in the presence of an adequate supply of fat-soluble vitamins. Bile acids (BAs) have been confirmed as emulsifiers to



Spread monomolecular films of monohydroxy bile acids and their salts: influence of hydroxyl position, bulk pH, and association with phosphatidylcholine.

It is concluded that the 3-OH group is crucial for anchoring bile acids and their salts to the aqueous interface, with all monohydroxy species condensing phospholipid membranes regardless of ionization state.

Bile acid/phosphatidylcholine interactions in mixed monomolecular layers: differences in condensation effects but not interfacial orientation between hydrophobic and hydrophilic bile acid species.

It is inferred that the long axes of the steroid nuclei of dihydroxy bile acids remain parallel to the interface in mixed bile acid/POPC +/- cholesterol monomolecular layers under all conditions and that fully dissociated hydrophobic and, to a lesser extent, hydrophilic bile salts condense phospholipid monomolescular layers and membranes in a similar fashion.

Fluorocholesterols, in contrast to hydroxycholesterols, exhibit interfacial properties similar to cholesterol.

These studies predict that fluorocholesterols should exhibit intramembrane spatial occupancy nearly identical to CH, whereas nucleus and especially side chain hydroxycholesterols will perturb membrane lipid packing notably.

Thermodynamic and molecular basis for dissimilar cholesterol-solubilizing capacities by micellar solutions of bile salts: cases of sodium chenodeoxycholate and sodium ursodeoxycholate and their glycine and taurine conjugates.

The results suggest that the differences in cholesterol-solubilizing capacities of CDC and UDC and their conjugates are due to subtle differences in micellar structure, resulting from the axial or equatorial orientation of the 7-hydroxyl function and the various conjugating groups.

Ultrastructural localization of a fluorinated bile salt in hepatocytes.

It is suggested that bile salts localize to the membranes, but not lumena, of organelles during hepatocyte exposure to bile chloride, calling into question the proposed role for vesicular transport of bile salt within hepatocytes.
