From glucose + uronic

Examples

  • One of the most popular molecules added directly to the toxicant or its phase I metabolite is glucuronic acid, a molecule derived from glucose, a common carbohydrate (sugar) that is the primary source of energy for cells.

    Biotransformation

  • Unlike glucuronic acid conjugates that are often eliminated in the bile, the highly polar sulfate conjugates are readily secreted in the urine.

    Biotransformation

  • Part III: The structure of the monomethyl glucuronic acid component.

    Chapter 5

  • UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (Ugts) are a supergene family of phase II drug-metabolizing enzymes that catalyze the conjugation of numerous hydrophobic small molecules with the UDP-glucuronic acid, converting them into hydrophilic molecules.

  • Therefore, the encoded family of diverse Ugt1 enzymes can catalyze the conjugation of a vast number of lipophilic xenobiotics and endobiotics with the UDP-glucuronic acid.

  • The constant exons encode a highly conserved donor-binding domain, which binds the UDP-glucuronic acid (UDPGA), and the carboxyl-terminal endoplasmic-reticulum (ER) - anchoring transmembrane segment.
