Specificity / Sensitivity
UGT Antibody detects endogenous levels of proteins from the UGT1A subfamily.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of the UGT1A subfamily. Antibodies were purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Glucuronidation is a major pathway that enhances the elimination of lipophilic xenobiotics and endobiotics to more more water soluble compounds for excretion (1,2). The UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) superfamily catalyzes the glucuronidation of the glycosyl group of a nucleotide sugar to a variety of endogenous and exogenous compounds. Over 100 UGT mammalian gene products have been described and have been divided into subfamilies based on sequence identities (3). The UGT1 subfamily consists of a number of gene products resulting from alternative splicing. These UGT products can differ in tissue expression and substrate specificity. Also, marked differences in the individual expression of UGT isoforms can account for differences in drug metabolism.
