Renal ischaemia is associated with accumulation of fatty acids (FA) and mobilisation of arachidonic acid (AA). Given the capacity of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) isoforms to metabolise both drugs and FA, we hypothesised that FA would inhibit renal drug glucuronidation. The effect of FA (C2:0-C20:5) on 4-methylumbelliferone (4-MU) glucuronidation was investigated using human kidney cortical microsomes (HKCM) and recombinant UGT1A9 and UGT2B7 as the enzyme sources. 4-MU glucuronidation… CONTINUE READING
