Metabolite Identification
Common NameTropate
DescriptionTropate, also known as Tropic acid or alpha-(Hydroxymethyl)phenylacetic acid, is classified as a beta hydroxy acid or a Beta hydroxy acid derivative. Beta hydroxy acids are compounds containing a carboxylic acid substituted with a hydroxyl group on the C3 carbon atom. Tropate is considered to be soluble (in water) and acidic. Tropate can be synthesized from hydratropic acid and propionic acid. Tropate can be synthesized into tropan-3alpha-yl 3-hydroxy-2-phenylpropanoate

Enzymes

General function:
Involved in sulfotransferase activity
Specific function:
Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3'-phospho-5'-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the sulfate conjugation of many hormones, neurotransmitters, drugs and xenobiotic compounds. Sulfonation increases the water solubility of most compounds, and therefore their renal excretion, but it can also result in bioactivation to form active metabolites. Sulfates hydroxysteroids like DHEA. Isoform 1 preferentially sulfonates cholesterol, and isoform 2 avidly sulfonates pregnenolone but not cholesterol.

General function:
Involved in transferase activity, transferring hexosyl groups
Specific function:
UDPGT is of major importance in the conjugation and subsequent elimination of potentially toxic xenobiotics and endogenous compounds. This isoform glucuronidates bilirubin IX-alpha to form both the IX-alpha-C8 and IX-alpha-C12 monoconjugates and diconjugate. Is also able to catalyze the glucuronidation of 17beta-estradiol, 17alpha-ethinylestradiol, 1-hydroxypyrene, 4-methylumbelliferone, 1-naphthol, paranitrophenol, scopoletin, and umbelliferone.
