Is there any literature out there (hopefully "For Dummies" version) of which liver pathways/enzymes "detoxify" and process lyme antigens?
Is N-acetyl-transferase 2 involved at all? Is acetylation in general involved?
Which specific glutathione-s-transferases are involved?
Or is it more proteolyitic/glycolytic activity of the antigenic proteins/polysaccharides?

- I don't think it works quite like that. Infectious debris -- and all the body's metabolic waste that occurs just form living -- can be hard to sort, so to speak.
And while certain cytochrome P-450 pathways seem to take the brunt of chemical clearance - and lyme can really stress all that -- the full liver, overall is pretty much on board for it all. We can't just focus on one storm drain in the neighborhood.
What might be of help is to focus on how to help the liver do all it does and, specifically, avoid agents that block glutathione production and use in the body (such as acetaminophen).
I know this does not address the particular Google BODY MAP to zoom in on the street and junctions - and I don't believe anyone is a "Dummy" so never warmed to that series of books, but some of the basics are here.
