Abstract

A cDNA encoding a human bilirubin UDP-glucuronosyltransferase has been isolated and stably expressed in Chinese hamster V79 lung fibroblast cell line. Western blotting of cell homogenates with anti-UGT antibody revealed a highly expressed protein of approx. 55.5 kDa in size. The expressed enzyme specifically catalysed the formation of bilirubin mono- and diglucuronides, and also catalysed the glucuronidation of two phenolic compounds, which are good substrates for other human UGT isoenzymes, at low rates.
