Effects of Propofol Analogs on Glucuronidation of Propofol, an Anesthetic Drug, by Human Liver Microsomes
prevent rapid forming O-glucuronide of propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol), an intravenous anesthetic, effects To of propofol analogs were investigated. Propofol was predominately glucuronidated by human UGT1A9 and intestinal or liver microsomes. 2,5-Diisopropylphenol inhibited the propofol glucuronidation. A possibility of developing orally administrable agents or of reducing propofol dose by coadministration is suggested.
