UGT Inhibition (and Other Non-CYP Enzymes)
The majority of drug-drug interactions (DDI) occur at the metabolic level. This physiological process usually changes the activity of metabolic enzymes such as UGT. The identification of UGT inhibition is highlighted as one of the main evaluations for the candidate compounds.
UGT inhibition assay, although performed less than CYP assay, still plays an important role in the DDI experiments. Because UGT inhibition may cause toxic side-effects.
Creative Bioarray provides UGT inhibition assays available for isoforms 1A1, 1A3, 1A4, 1A6, 1A9, 2B7, and 2B15. Our team uses recombinant enzymes and different inhibitor concentrations to assess IC50 values towards specific UGT isoforms.

Others non-CYP enzymes:
- Flavin containing mono-oxygenase (FMO)
- Monoamine-oxidase (MAO)
- Carboxylesterase (CE)
- Aldehyde oxidase (AOX)
- Xanthine oxidase (XO)
- Sulfotransferase (SULT)
