sulfotransferase

(redirected from sulphotransferase)

sul·fo·trans·fer·ase

(sŭl'fō-trans'fĕr-ās),
Generic term for enzymes in EC sub-subclass 2.8.2 catalyzing the transfer of a sulfate group from 3'-phosphoadenylyl sulfate (active sulfate) to the hydroxyl group of an acceptor, producing the sulfated derivative and 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphate.
Synonym(s): sulfikinase, sulfokinase

Tibolone is also a sulphatase inhibitor, blocking conversion of oestrone sulphate to oestrone, as well as stimulating local sulphotransferase activity.
It was observed in vitro that Hg exposure significantly altered the androgen synthesis pathway by inhibiting hydroxysteroid sulphotransferase (HST) activity, thus reducing the conversion of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to dehydroepiandrosterone-sulphate (DHEAS) (21-24).
Macular corneal dystrophy type I and type II are caused by distinct mutations in a new sulphotransferase gene.
In addition, in vitro studies showed that Hg exposure significantly inhibited hydroxysteroid sulphotransferase (HST) activity, thus reducing the conversion of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) to dehydroepiandrosterone-sulphate (DHEA-S) (130, 131).
DHEA is metabolized to form DHEAS, and both hormones are metabolically interconvertible by the action of the enzymes sulphotransferase for conjugation and sulphatase for hydrolysis, present in many tissues (Baulieu, 1996).

The results confirmed that silymarin's phenolic compounds undergo extensive metabolism, as do almost all flavonoids, forming sulphate and glucuronide conjugates through the action of UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) and sulphotransferases (SULTs) in the small intestine and liver.
