UDPGT is of major importance in the conjugation and subsequent elimination of potentially toxic xenobiotics and endogenous compounds. This isoform has specificity for phenols. Belongs to the UDP-glycosyltransferase family. 1 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
