Glucuronide conjugation of xenobiotics containing a carboxylic acid moiety represents an important metabolic pathway for these compounds in humans. Several human UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) have been shown to catalyze the formation of acyl-glucuronides, including UGT2B7, UGT1A3, and UGT1A9. In this study, recombinant expressed UGT isoforms were investigated with many structurally related carboxylic acid analogues, and the UGT rank order for catalyzing the glucuronidation of carboxylic… CONTINUE READING
