GLUTATHIONE CONJUGATES Naphthalene and some sulphonamides also form conjugates with glutathione. One endogenous function of glutathione conjugation is formation of a sulphidopeptide leukotriene, leukotriene (LT) C4. This is formed by conjugation of glutathione with LTA4, analogous to a phase II reaction.
Propranolol undergoes substantial hepatic presystemic metabolism, and small doses given orally are completely metabolized before they reach the systematic circulation. 5). After oral administration the relationship, although linear, does not pass through the origin and there is a threshold dose below which measurable concentrations of propranolol are not detectable in systemic venous plasma. v. ) In patients with portocaval anastomoses bypassing the liver, hepatic presystemic metabolism is bypassed, so very small drug doses are needed compared to the usual oral dose.
