Experimental Conditions

Purified green tea catechins were tested as inhibitors of UGT enzymes as described in Gufford et al., 2014 (Drug Metab Dispos. 2014 Oct;42(10):1675-83); information regarding incubation volume, time, and protein linearity were obtain therein.
Bovine serum albumin (0.05%) was added into the incubation system.
