GALACTOSIDES BY HUMAN LIVER AND KIDNEY Steroid Estrogen Glycosides : FORMATION OF GLUCOSIDES AND

Homogenates of human liver can transfer both glucose and galactose from their respective uridine nucleotides to the 17a-hydroxyl of 17o1[6,7-3H]estradio1. Glucose was also transferred, but less readily, to the 16ac-hydroxyl of [6,7-3H]estriol. Kidney homogenates effect these same transfers. The radioactive steroid glycosides formed, namely 17~~ estradiol-17… CONTINUE READING
