A comparison of glucoside formation by liver preparations from the rabbit and the mouse.

Abstract

Liver homogenates from mice and from rabbits transfer glucose from UDP-[6-(3)H]glucose, at pH7.0, to oestradiol-17alpha, oestradiol-17beta, oestradiol-17alpha 3-glucuronide, p-nitrophenol and diethylstilboestrol. In the rabbit the phenolic steroids were better substrates than p-nitrophenol for the glucosyltransferase, whereas the reverse was true in the… (More)
