A new perspective on the importance of glycine N–acyltransferase in the detoxification of benzoic acid
Despite being the first biochemical reaction to be discovered, the glycine conjugation pathway remains poorly characterised. It has generally been assumed that glycine conjugation serves to increase the water solubility ...
Molecular characterisation of a recombinant bovine glycine N–acyltransferase
(North-West University, 2010)
Conjugation of glycine to organic acids is an important detoxification mechanism. Metabolites of aspirin and industrial solvents, benzoic acid found in plant material and many endogenous metabolites are detoxified by ...
