Figure 1

UGTs conjugate oestrogen-substrates into biologically inactive oestrogen glucuronides. The figure gives a schematic view with focus on glucuronidation and not a complete picture of oestradiol metabolism. Androgens are also inactivated by uridine 5'-diphospho-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs), but are not included in this illustration.
