UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 2B17 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the UGT2B17 gene.[1][2]

UGT2B17 belongs to the family of UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs; EC, enzymes that catalyze the transfer of glucuronic acid from uridine diphosphoglucuronic acid to a variety of substrates, including steroid hormones.[supplied by OMIM][2]
