Deep understanding of the interaction between thienorphine and UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) isoforms
Recombinant UGT isoforms screening experiment and enzyme kinetic study showed that UGT1A1 completely contributed to the glucuronidation of thienorphine, which is a potent, long-acting partial opioid agonist. Expand
Glucuronidation of the broad‐spectrum antiviral drug arbidol by UGT isoforms
The aim of this work was to identify the uridine glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) isoforms involved in the metabolism of the broad‐spectrum antiviral drug arbidol.


Determination of mRNA Expression of Human UDP-Glucuronosyltransferases and Application for Localization in Various Human Tissues by Real-Time Reverse Transcriptase-Polymerase Chain Reaction
An exhaustive real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (PCR) quantification method was used to determine 15 of the catalytically active human UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) isoforms to provide valuable information about the medical efficacy or pharmacokinetic characteristics of a wide variety of UGT-metabolized drugs.

The effect of incubation conditions on the laboratory measurement of the methane producing capacity of livestock wastes.
Methanogenesis was identified as the major rate-limiting step during the anaerobic degradation of slurries, probably due to inhibition by volatile fatty acids, and high free NH(3) concentrations were suspected to inhibit the hydrolysis process. Expand
Evaluation of 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine, morphine, and codeine as probe substrates for UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 2B7 (UGT2B7) in human liver microsomes: specificity and influence of the UGT2B7*2 polymorphism.
Although both AZT and morphine can serve as in vitro probe substrates for UGT2B7, AZT appears to be more selective than morphine. Expand
The effect of incubation conditions on the enzyme kinetics of udp-glucuronosyltransferases.
The Hill and/or Michaelis-Menten equations should be used to fit kinetic data to obtain an accurate assessment of in vitro glucuronidation. Expand
Compressed mints and chewing gum containing magnolia bark extract are effective against bacteria responsible for oral malodor.
MBE demonstrated a significant antibacterial activity against organisms responsible for oral malodor and can be incorporated in compressed mints and chewing gum for improved breath-freshening benefits. Expand
Determination of propofol UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) activities in hepatic microsomes from different species by UFLC-ESI-MS.
The developed LC-ESI-MS method was successfully used for characterizing interspecies and human individual differences in the O-glucuronidation activity towards propofol, as well as investigating inhibitory effects of androsterone and phenylbutazone on prop ofol O- GLUCuronidation in HLM. Expand
Dopamine Is a Low-Affinity and High-Specificity Substrate for the Human UDP-Glucuronosyltransferase 1A10
Examination of four UGT1A10 mutants revealed lower dopamine glucuronidation in all of them, particularly in F90A and F93A, and this results indicate that dopamine may be a useful probe substrate for this enzyme. Expand
Characterization of Niflumic Acid as a Selective Inhibitor of Human Liver Microsomal UDP-Glucuronosyltransferase 1A9: Application to the Reaction Phenotyping of Acetaminophen Glucuronidation
Data suggest that UGT1A6 is the major enzyme involved in APAP glucuronidation, as demonstrated in the reaction phenotyping of human liver microsomal acetaminophen. Expand
Effects of Cell Differentiation and Assay Conditions on the UDP-Glucuronosyltransferase Activity in Caco-2 Cells
Results clearly indicated that although differentiation increases glucuronidation activity, the rates in Caco-2 cells are mostly very low, much lower than those in either HLM or HIM, and it may be concluded that Caco -2 cells, even differentiated ones, do not provide a good model system to assess first-pass drug glucuronidated in the intestine.

Therapeutic applications of compounds in the Magnolia family.
The aim of this study was to review a variety of experimental and clinical reports and, describe the effectiveness, toxicities and pharmacokinetics, and possible mechanisms of Magnolia and/or its constituents. Expand
