Basal level enzyme activities and enzyme inducibility were compared for rat hepatocytes that were cultured in 96-well plates with three different extracellular matrix configurations: single layer (SL) collagen type I, SL Matrigel, and collagen/Matrigel (C/M) sandwich. Overall, C/M sandwich and SL Matrigel plates were both superior to SL collagen type I plates in maintaining enzyme activities and inducibility and C/M sandwich plates had higher induced activity for CYP3A enzymes than SL Matrigel plates did. Cytotoxicity of nine reference compounds to rat hepatocytes (C/M sandwich configuration), rat hepatoma H4IIE and mouse fibroblast Balb/c 3T3 (3T3) cells was evaluated in 96-well plates using neutral red uptake (for 3T3) and tetrazolium salt MTS assays (for H4IIE and rat hepatocytes). For compounds chlorpromazine, quinidine, trichlorfon, thiopental, and antipyrine, the absolute differences in cytotoxicity LogIC(50) values obtained from different cell types were relatively small and without an obvious trend. The DeltaLogIC(50) values between cultured hepatocytes and the cell lines were much larger for acetaminophen and cyclophosphamide (1.35 < or =/DeltaLogIC(50)/ < or = 3.40), and for clofibrate and thioacetamide (not cytotoxic in hepatocytes at their highest dose levels). These large differences were likely the result of metabolism of these compounds in rat hepatocytes. The relationship between in vitro cytotoxicity LogIC(50) values and in vivo mouse or rat oral acute LogLD(50) values showed that compared to the cell lines, cultured rat hepatocytes improved correlation for acetaminophen and cyclophosphamide. The potential benefit of conducting in vitro cytotoxicity screening using a combination of permanent cell lines and cultured hepatocytes would allow us to obtain mechanistic insight on bioactivation, as well as improve the predictability of metabolism-mediated toxicity.
