Bile acid-induced lung injury has become an important topic for neonatologists after the discovery of a high incidence of infant respiratory distress syndrome complicated from maternal intrahepatic cholestasis. To explore the molecular pathway of bile acid-induced lung injury, we investigated the cytotoxicity of the glycochenodeoxycholate (GCDC) to alveolar epithelial type II cells (AECII), as the main component of bile acid. The results demonstrated that glycochenodeoxycholate induced oxidative stress, mitochondrial damage, and increased caspase activity in the primary cultured AECII. Moreover, ROS scavengers and caspase inhibitors could rescue cell death induced by GCDC in rat AECII. Our results also indicated that GCDC inhibited AECII surfactant secretion. In conclusion, this study suggested that cell death prevention and cell therapy should be considered as therapeutic strategies for infant respiratory distress syndrome complicated from maternal intrahepatic cholestasis.
