When a drug has been metabolized by phase I reactions, it can be metabolized further by phase II, or it can be hydrophilic enough to be eliminated without further metabolism. Phase II reactions involve the conjugation (coupling) of a drug with a polar substrate such as glucuronic, acetic, sulfuric or an amino acid, which generally leads to total inactivation of the parent compound. Many drugs alter the activities of these metabolic processes by either stimulating catabolic enzymes or inhibiting them, and many drug–drug interactions are due to this.
