Abstract

The role of cytochrome P450 metabolism of fatty acids and lipid peroxidation in the alterations of the fatty acid composition of the liver and liver pathology was investigated. The CYP2E1 inhibitors partially prevented CYP2E1 induction by ethanol and completely blocked lipid peroxidation. However, the liver pathology induced by ethanol was only partially prevented as was the decrease in arachidonic acid in total liver lipid, triglycerides and cholesterol esters. This means that liver peroxidation induced by ethanol can not completely account for the liver pathology or the decrease in arachidonic acid caused by ethanol. Lauric acid ω-1 hydroxidation by the liver microsomes in vitro was increased by ethanol and partially blocked by CYP2E1 inhibitors. However, although ethanol feeding increased the total hydroxidation and epoxidation of arachidonic acid, these were not inhibited by CYP2E1 inhibitors. Thus the ethanol-induced arachidonic acid depletion is not likely due to CYP2E1 metabolism of arachidonic acid, since the severity of liver pathology correlated negatively with the decrease in arachidonic acid in the ethanol-fed rats. The increase in its metabolism by microsomes and decrease in synthesis may be an important mechanism of ethanol-induced liver injury.
