Little is known about the mechanisms of: 1) biliary phosphatidylcholine (PC) secretion by the hepatocyte, 2) selectivity for biliary 1-palmitoyl-2-linoleoyl-PC (PLPC) secretion, and 3) exclusion of 1-stearoyl-2-arachidonyl-PC (SAPC) from bile. The experiments were designed to determine, in rats, whether selectivity (for PLPC and against SAPC) is influenced by bile acid hydrophobicity or secretion rate. We examined the effects of bile acid depletion and of ileal infusion of taurocholic acid, tauroursodeoxycholic acid, and taurochenodeoxycholic acid. Compared to bile acid depletion, infusion of each bile acid caused PLPC to decrease from 59% of bile PC to 48%, and SAPC to increase from 2.6% to 5%. Bile acid hydrophobicity had no effect on PC selectivity, but selectivity decreased to a moderate degree as total PC secretion increased. To determine whether selectivity is for preformed molecular species, we used a new method to isotopically label four species of hepatic PC. This was done by intravenous injection of PLPC and SAPC labeled in the linoleate (14C) and arachidonate (3H) moieties. Assuming rapid mixing of each PC species in the hepatocyte as supported by the specific activity data, bile SAPC and SLPC were derived entirely from hepatic preformed SAPC and SLPC; bile PLPC was from both preformed PLPC (55%) and an unlabeled input (45%, probably direct secretion of newly synthesized PLPC). In conclusion, the selective composition of bile PC is not related to bile acid hydrophobicity, but is partially lost as secretion increases within the physiologic range.
