Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Biotin





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Chronic exposure of 266-6 cells to alcohol led to a significant inhibition in biotin uptake, expression of SMVT protein, and mRNA as well as in the activity of the SLC5A6 promoter.

The [(3)H]biotin uptake results showed that chronic ethanol feeding in rats leads to a significant inhibition in carrier-mediated biotin transport across both renal brush border and basolateral membrane domains.

Chronic alcohol use in humans is associated with a significant reduction in plasma biotin levels, and animal studies have shown inhibition in intestinal biotin absorption by chronic alcohol feeding.

Because ethanol inhibits biotin uptake by the apical membrane, the effect of ethanol on uptake by basolateral vesicles was investigated.
With 10-hr exposure at a concentration of 2 and 3 mg/ml, but not 1 mg/ml, ethanol modestly inhibited biotin uptake.

Chronic ethanol feeding is also associated with a significant decrease in plasma biotin concentrations.
Compared with pair-fed controls, ethanol feeding significantly decreased plasma biotin concentrations and transport at physiological concentrations (0.01, 0.1, and 0.3 mumol/L) but not at pharmacological concentration (100 mumol/L).
These data demonstrate that chronic ethanol feeding and acute ethanol exposure in vitro inhibit the intestinal transport of biotin by the carrier-mediated process.
When added to the incubation medium of everted jejunal sacs from dry-food-fed rats, ethanol (2% vol:vol) significantly inhibited the transport of biotin at a physiological concentration (0.1 mumol/L) but not at a pharmacological concentration (100 mumol/L).

Moreover, mixed layers of short alcohol- and amine-terminated thiolates were successfully constructed at the gold surfaces and were shown to be the most efficient for the covalent binding of biotin thanks to the blocking effect of the thioalcohol , which prevented direct adsorption of biotin to the gold surface.

The catalytic capacity of biotin carboxylase is markedly enhanced by ethanol (11 times at 15% v/v), and certain other organic solvents; this may mimic an effector-mediated response.
