Chenodeoxycholic acid Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

Off-White Solid


Chenodeoxycholic acid is a bile acid that induces apoptosis through protein kinase C signaling pathways.It is a major bile acid in many vertebrates, occurring as the N-glycine and/or N-taurine conjugate. With other bile acids, forms mixed micelles with lecithin in bile which solubilize cholesterol and thus facilitates its excretion.Bile acids are essential for solubilization and transport of dietary lipids, are the major products of cholesterol catabolism, and are physiological ligands for farnesoid X receptor (FXR), a nuclear receptor that regulates genes involved in lipid metabolism.They are also inherently cytotoxic, as physiological imbalance contributes to increased oxidative stress. Bile acid-controlled signaling pathways are promising novel targets to treat such metabolic diseases as obesity, type II diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and atherosclerosis.
  1. Chenodeoxycholic acid is widely utilized in therapeutic applications. It is applied in medical therapy to dissolve gallstones. It is employed in the treatment of cerebrotendineous xanthomatosis. It is used to treat constipation and cerebrotendineous xanthomatosis. It acts as a urea receptor in supramolecular chemistry which can contain anions. It is a staining additive commonly used with ruthenium or organic photo-sensitizers in the preparation of staining solutions for dye solar cells.
  2. Chenodeoxycholic Acid is a staining additive commonly used with ruthenium or organic photo-sensitizers in the preparation of staining solutions for Dye Solar Cells. This co-adsorbent will prevent dye aggregation on the semiconductor surface, reducing losses in the solar cell's operation.
  3. Chenodeoxycholic Acid is a white solid added with the dye powder to the solvent while preparing staining solutions. The concentration of co-adsorbent is typically 10 fold the dye concentration.
  4. Chenodeoxycholic acid has been used in a study to assess its effects as a long-term replacement therapy for cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX).
  5. It has also been used in a study to investigate its effects on the small-intestinal absorption of bile acids in patients with ileostomies.
  6. Chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA) is a hydrophobic primary bile acid that activates nuclear receptors involved in cholesterol metabolism.EC50 concentrations for activation of FXR range from 13-34 μM.In cells, CDCA also binds to bile acid binding proteins (BABP) with a reported stoichiometry of 1:2.CDCA toxicity is linked to increased cellular glutathione levels and increased oxidative stress. Exposure of cells to excess CDCA contributes to liver and intestinal cancers.


anticholithogenic, antilipemic agent


A major bile acid in many vertebrates, occurring as the N-glycine and/or N-taurine conjugate. With other bile acids, forms mixed micelles with lecithin in bile which solubilize cholesterol and thus fa cilitates its excretion. Fcilitates fat absorption in the small intestine by micellar solubilization of fatty acids and monoglycerides. Anticholelithogenic. Epimeric with Ursodiol.


An apoptosis inducer via PKC-dependent signalling pathway.

Purification Methods

This major bile acid in vertebrates (~80mg) is chromatographed on silica gel (5g) and eluted with CHCl3/EtOAc (3:2) and crystallised from EtOAc/hexane. It has IR: max 1705 cm-1(CHCl3). It also crystallises from EtOAc, EtOAc/heptane after purifying via the poorly soluble Na and K salt if necessary. [Kametani et al. J Org Chem 4 7 2331 1982, Beilstein 10 IV 1604.]
