Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SULT1B1 Gene
Sulfotransferase enzymes catalyze the sulfate conjugation of many hormones, neurotransmitters, drugs, and xenobiotic compounds. These cytosolic enzymes are different in their tissue distributions and substrate specificities. The gene structure (number and length of exons) is similar among family members. However, the total genomic length of this gene is greater than that of other SULT1 genes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SULT1B1 Gene
SULT1B1 (Sulfotransferase Family 1B Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Phase II conjugation. GO annotations related to this gene include sulfotransferase activity and aryl sulfotransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SULT1C3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SULT1B1 Gene
Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3-phospho-5-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the sulfate conjugation of many hormones, neurotransmitters, drugs and xenobiotic compounds. Sulfonation increases the water solubility of most compounds, and therefore their renal excretion, but it can also result in bioactivation to form active metabolites. Sulfates dopamine, small phenols such as 1-naphthol and p-nitrophenol and thyroid hormones, including 3,3-diiodothyronine, triidothyronine, reverse triiodothyronine and thyroxine.
