    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

In vitro liver metabolism of 11 prenylated flavonoids and isoflavonoids was investigated by determining their phase I glucuronyl and sulfate metabolites using pork liver preparations. One hundred metabolites were annotated using RP-UHPLC-ESI-MSn. A mass spectrometry-based data interpretation guideline was proposed for the tentative annotation of the position of hydroxyl groups, considering its relevance for estrogenic activity. To relate structure to metabolism, compounds were classified on the basis of three criteria: backbone structure (isoflavene, isoflavan, or flavanone), number of prenyl groups (0, 1, or 2), and prenyl configuration (chain or pyran). Glucuronidation was most extensive for isoflavenes and for unprenylated compounds (yield of 90-100%). Pyran and chain prenylation gave more complex hydroxylation patterns with 4 or more than 6 hydroxyl isomers, respectively, as compared to unprenylated compounds (only 1 hydroxyl isomer). Moreover, the number of hydroxyl isomers also increased with the number of prenyl groups.
