Chemical Glucuronic Acid

Name Glucuronic Acid
Equivalent Terms Glucuronate | Glucuronate, Monopotassium | Glucuronate, Monosodium | Glucuronic Acid, 6-(14)C-labeled, (D)-isomer | Glucuronic Acid, Monopotassium Salt | Glucuronic Acid, Monosodium Salt | Monopotassium Glucuronate | Monosodium Glucuronate
CAS Registry Number 576-37-4
Definition A sugar acid formed by the oxidation of the C-6 carbon of GLUCOSE. In addition to being a key intermediate metabolite of the uronic acid pathway, glucuronic acid also plays a role in the detoxification of certain drugs and toxins by conjugating with them to form GLUCURONIDES.
