Entry Information
Gene NameUDP glucuronosyltransferase 2 family, polypeptide B17
Protein EntryUDB17_HUMAN
UniProt IDO75795
Comment typeDescription
Catalytic ActivityUDP-glucuronate + acceptor = UDP + acceptor beta-D-glucuronoside.
FunctionUDPGT is of major importance in the conjugation and subsequent elimination of potentially toxic xenobiotics and endogenous compounds. The major substrates of this isozyme are eugenol > 4-methylumbelliferone > dihydrotestosterone (DHT) > androstane-3-alpha,17-beta-diol (3-alpha-diol) > testosterone > androsterone (ADT).
PolymorphismCopy-number variation of UGT2B17 defines the bone mineral density quantitative trait locus 12 (BMND12) [MIM
SimilarityBelongs to the UDP-glycosyltransferase family.
Subcellular LocationMicrosome membrane ; Single- pass membrane protein . Endoplasmic reticulum membrane ; Single-pass membrane protein .
Tissue SpecificityExpressed in various tissues including the liver, kidney, testis, uterus, placenta, mammary gland, adrenal gland, skin and prostate.
