acetylation (·sē·t·lā·shn),

n a phase II detoxification pathway occurring in the liver in which acetyl-CoA combines with metabolic products.

acetylation

one of the synthetic biotransformations which operate in the metabolism of drugs in which metabolites are produced that are more readily excreted than the parent drug. Dogs are exceptional amongst the domesticated species in that acetylation does not occur in their tissues. Acetylation is one of the principal metabolic pathways of the sulfonamides.
