  • The designation of these transcripts is as recommended at the VIIIth International Workshop on Glucuronidation and the Glucuronosyltransferases, University of Iowa, May 19–22, 1996. Oligonucleotide primers used for the analysis of the UGT1 transcripts were based upon the DNA sequences deposited in GenBank.

  • 2-a Analysis of transcripts conducted by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction using human tissue RNA was conducted as outlined in ref. 45.

  • 2-b The designation of UGT1A9 has been identified previously as HlugP4 (40).
