Summaries for UGT2B17 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UGT2B17 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the uridine diphosphoglucuronosyltransferase protein family. The encoded enzyme catalyzes the transfer of glucuronic acid from uridine diphosphoglucuronic acid to a diverse array of substrates including steroid hormones and lipid-soluble drugs. This process, known as glucuronidation, is an intermediate step in the metabolism of steroids. Copy number variation in this gene is associated with susceptibility to osteoporosis.[provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]

GeneCards Summary for UGT2B17 Gene

UGT2B17 (UDP Glucuronosyltransferase 2 Family, Polypeptide B17) is a Protein Coding gene.
