A P-450 heme-thiolate protein. Requires EC 188.8.131.52, NADPH---hemoprotein reductase and cytochrome b5 for maximal activity. This enzyme is important in bile acid biosynthesis, being responsible for the balance between the formation of cholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid .

dexomethasone acutely induces hepatic mRNA levels of cholesterol 7alpha-hydrol Cyp6a1, cholesterol 27-hydrolase Cyp27, and in particular sterol 12alpha-hydrolase Cyp8b1. Neonatal dexomethasone administration leads to increased biliary lipid secretion, decreased Cyp8b1 mRNA expression and a 3fold higher Cyp7a1/Cyp8b1 mRNA ratio in rats at week 8
in mice deficient for liver receptor homolog LRH-1, basal CYP8B1 mRNA levels are significantly decreased. CYP8B1 repression by farnesoid X receptor FXR is intact in mice deficient for LRH-1 in hepatocytes

Dexamethasone exposure of neonatal rats modulates biliary lipid secretion and hepatic expression of genes controlling bile acid metabolism in adulthood without interfering with primary bile acid kinetics
