IUBMB Comments
The formation of sulfate esters of bile acids is an essential step in the prevention of toxicity by monohydroxy bile acids in many species . This enzyme is both a bile salt and a 3-hydroxysteroid sulfotransferase. In addition to the 5beta-bile acid glycolithocholate, deoxycholate, 3beta-hydroxy-5-cholenoate and dehydroepiandrosterone (3beta-hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one) also act as substrates [see also EC 2.8.2.2 (alcohol sulfotransferase) and EC 2.8.2.34 (glycochenodeoxycholate sulfotransferase)]. May be identical to EC 2.8.2.2 .
