The drug-metabolizing UDP glucuronosyltransferases are encoded by genes which constitute a multigene family. One rat gene subfamily codes for at least four constitutive enzyme forms, including those which glucuronidate the androgenic steroids testosterone (UDPGTr-3)and androsterone (UDPGTr-4). In the present study, UDPGTr-3 and UDPGTr-4 cDNAs were used to demonstrate that an homologous subfamily is present in the mouse genome. Using mouse x Chinese hamster somatic cell hybrids, we mapped at least one gene of this UDP glucuronosyltransferase subfamily (UDPGTr-3)to mouse chromosome 5 and suggest the name as the Udpgt-3 locus.
