Species variation in toxication and detoxication of acetaminophen in vivo: a comparative study of biliary and urinary excretion of acetaminophen metabolites.

Acetaminophen (AA) is converted to a toxic electrophile that may subsequently form a glutathione conjugate (AA-GS). In addition to the toxication pathway metabolites, which consist of AA-GS and its hydrolysis products (AA-cysteinylglycine, AA-cysteine and AA-mercapturate), detoxication pathway metabolites, such as AA-glucuronide and AA-sulfate, are also… CONTINUE READING
