The objectives of the present study included (1) to identify through ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography/quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC/Q-TOF MS) and high-performance liquid chromatography-solid-phase extraction-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (HPLC-SPE-NMR) the WEL metabolites formed in rats following an oral administration of 50 mg/kg WEL; (2) to determine the uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) responsible for WEL glucuronidation using human liver microsomes (HLMs), human intestine microsomes (HIMs), human kidney microsomes (HKMs), and recombinant human UGT enzymes; and (3) to explore the possible mechanisms of WEL regioselective glucuronidation.
