Abstract Intrahepatic cholestasis associated with bile canalicular injury occurred when the plant Lantana camara was administered orally to sheep and when female rats were dosed orally with the toxic lantana triterpene reduced lantadene A. When reduced lantadene A was given into the portal vein of a sheep, 85% was excreted in bile during the following week. Bile canalicular membrane fractions prepared from intoxicated rats contained metabolites of reduced lantadene A and 13C NMR spectra of these fractions showed changes compatible with disorganisation of the phospholipids in the membranes. It is concluded that lantana toxins are excreted in bile and cholestasis may result from an interaction of triterpene metabolites with components of the bile canalicular membranes.
