Biosynthesis of acyl groups on molecular species of biliary phosphatidylcholines during metabolism of [2,2,2-2H3]ethanol.

Abstract Text

Incorporation of deuterium into different positions of individual molecular species of biliary phosphatidylcholines was determined in bile fistula rats given [2,2,2-2H3]ethanol under conditions ensuring maximal rate of oxidation for 24 h. The deuterium-labelling of the glycerol moiety of the major molecular species was about 6-8 atom% at the end of ethanol administration. The deuterium excess at each of the different positions of the glycerol moiety of 1-palmitoyl-2-linoleoyl phosphatidylcholine was less than 3 atom%. From the isotopic composition of the palmitoyl residues of the phosphatidylcholines, it was calculated that [2,2,2-2H3]ethanol supplied about 35-40% of the acetyl-CoA forming the terminal methyl group and about 25-30% of the other C2 units of the palmitic acid chain. This difference in deuterium incorporation was interpreted as being due to an isotope effect, probably in the rate-limiting carboxylation step of acetyl-CoA. Most or perhaps all of the acetyl groups derived from ethanol were introduced into the terminal methyl group without loss of deuterium. This indicates that citrate is not an important carrier of acetyl-CoA in the biosynthesis of fatty acids from ethanol.
