High impact information on LMFA03060012


Anatomical context of LMFA03060012

  • Comparison of biological activity with known basophil and eosinophil-activating hydroxyeicosanoids demonstrated similar activity with 5(S)-hydroperoxy-6E,8Z,11Z,14Z-eicosatetraenoic acid (5(S)-HPETE) [6].

Gene context of LMFA03060012

  • In contrast to bovine platelet 12-lipoxygenase and other 12-lipoxygenases, this enzyme is unable to convert 5(S)-HETE (5(S)-hydroxy,6-trans-8,11,14-cis-eicosatetraenoic acid) or 5(S)-HPETE (5(S)-hydroperoxy,6-trans-8,11,14-cis-eicosatetraenoic acid) into 5(S),12(S)-dihydroxy-6,10-trans,8,14-cis-eicosatetraenoic acid [7].
  • 5(S)-HPETE occasionally increased the K conductance, but failed to occlude the somatostatin response [8].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of LMFA03060012

  • In this study we altered the positional specificity of the human 5-lipoxygenase by multiple site-directed mutagenesis and assayed the leukotriene A(4) synthase activity of the mutant enzyme species with (5S,6E,8Z,11Z,14Z)-5-hydroperoxy-6,8,11,14-eicos atetraenoic acid (5S-HpETE) as substrate [3].
