A member of the UDPGT (UDP-glucuronosyltransferase) enzyme family is thought to catalyze the reaction of abacavir and UDP-glucuronate to form UDP and abacavir-5'-glucuronate, one of the major forms in which abacavir is excreted from the body (McDowell et al. 1999; Ravitch and Moseley 2001). The specific UDPGT family enzyme family member or members that catalyze this reaction have not been identified.
