    Glucuronidation represents a major pathway which enhances the elimination of many lipophilic xenobiotics and endobiotics to more water-soluble compounds. The UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) family catalyzes the glucuronidation of the glycosyl group of a nucleotide sugar to an acceptor compound...

    During human development impressive changes in drug disposition occur. An important determinant of drug clearance is metabolism, something that is not only determined by ontogenic regulation but also by genetic processes which add to the variability of drug metabolism during different stages of...

    Xenoestrogens, such as bisphenol A and diethylstilbestrol, are glucuronidated by an isoform of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase named UGT2B1 in the livers of adult male rats. In this study, we found that nonylphenol and octylphenol are also conjugated with glucuronic acid by adult rat liver...
