GeneCards Summary for UGT3A1 Gene
UGT3A1 (UDP Glycosyltransferase Family 3 Member A1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UGT3A1 include Bile Acid Synthesis Defect, Congenital, 3 and Niemann-Pick Disease, Type B. Among its related pathways are Cytochrome P450 - arranged by substrate type and Porphyrin and chlorophyll metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding and glucuronosyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UGT3A2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for UGT3A1 Gene
UDP-glucuronosyltransferases catalyze phase II biotransformation reactions in which lipophilic substrates are conjugated with glucuronic acid to increase water solubility and enhance excretion. They are of major importance in the conjugation and subsequent elimination of potentially toxic xenobiotics and endogenous compounds (By similarity).
