Evaluation of Different Enzymes on Hydrolysis Efficiencies of Glucuronide Drug Metabolites in Urine

β-glucuronidase (GUS) enzymes are utilized to hydrolyze glucuronide (gluc) drug metabolites to the parent drug, facilitating analysis by LC-MS/MS.

Protocols

Using UHPLC/MS (TOF) for Detection of Drugs and Metabolites in Urine Following Optimized Enzymatic Hydrolysis Conditions

To optimize hydrolysis using β-glucuronidase, factors such as incubation time, temperature, hydrolysis pH, enzyme source, and enzyme concentration must be evaluated for each glucuronide metabolite to be analyzed.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
