Sulfotransferase 1A1 (SULT1A1) is a cytosolic sulfotransferases that is expressed in the liver, lung, adrenal, brain, platelets, and skin. SULT1A1 is a phenol sulfotransferases with thermostable enzyme activity. SULT1A1 utilises 3'-phospho-5'-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyse the sulfate conjugation of catecholamines, phenolic drugs and neurotransmitters. It is responsible for the sulfonation and activation of minoxidil. SULT1A1 mediates the metabolic activation of carcinogenic N-hydroxyarylamines to DNA binding products and could so participate as modulating factor of cancer risk.
