SULT1B1

A gene on chromosome 4q13.3 that encodes an enzyme which sulfonates hormones, neurotransmitters, drugs and xenobiotics. In some cases the enzyme activates them; in all of them, it increases their water solubility and, by extension, their renal excretion. It also sulfonates dopamine, small phenols and thyroid hormones, including 3,3'-diiodothyronine, triidothyronine, reverse triiodothyronine and thyroxine.

SULT1B1, the thyroid hormone sulfotransferase, catalyzed the sulfonation of 3-OH-BaP; however, OH-PCBs that were potent inhibitors of SULT1A1 were only weak inhibitors of the SULT1Bl-catalyzed reaction.
