Abstract: Acute cholecystitis develops in gallbladders (GB) with excessive bile cholesterol (Ch). Increased membrane Ch content affects membrane function and may affect PGE(2) receptors involved in the cytoprotection against acute inflammation. This study was aimed at determining whether the cytoprotective response to PGE(2) is affected by lithogenic bile with Ch. Muscle cells from human GB with cholesterol stones (ChS) or pigment stones (PS) were obtained by enzymatic digestion. PGE(2) levels were measured by radioimmu…
