Numerous lung cell lines are currently used as in vitro models for pharmacological and toxicological studies. However, no exhaustive report about the metabolic capacities of these models in comparison with those of lung tissues is available. In the present study, we used a high throughput quantitative real-time RT-PCR strategy to characterize the expression profiles of 380 genes encoding proteins involved in the metabolism and disposition of xenobiotics in ten commonly used lung cell lines (A549, H292, H358, H460, H727, Calu-1, 16HBE, 1 HAEO, BEAS-2B and L-132), and four primary cultures of human bronchial epithelial cells. Expression results were then compared to those previously obtained in human non tumoral and tumoral lung tissues. Our results revealed disparities in gene expression between lung cell lines or when comparing lung cell lines with primary cells or lung tissues. Primary cell cultures displayed the highest similarities with bronchial mucosa in terms of transcript profiling and therefore appear to be the most relevant in vitro model for investigating the metabolism and bioactivation of toxicants and drugs in bronchial epithelium. H292 and BEAS-2B cell lines which exhibited the highest homology in gene expression pattern with primary cells and the lowest number of dysregulated genes compared to non-tumoral lung tissues, could be used as surrogates for toxicological and pharmacological studies. Overall, our study should provide references for researchers to choose the most appropriate in vitro model for analyzing the cellular effects of drugs or airborne toxicants on the airways.
