Previous work showed that rabbit aorta metabolizes arachidonic acid via 15-lipoxygenase to 15-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HPETE), which undergoes an enzymatic rearrangement to 11-hydroxy-14,15-epoxyeicosatrienoic acid (11-H-14,15-EETA) and 15-hydroxy-11,12-epoxyeicosatrienoic acid (15-H-11,12-EETA). Hydrolysis of the epoxy group results in the formation of 11,14,15- and

FEBS letters, 365(1), 66-70 (1995-05-22)
Increased membrane lipid peroxidation has recently been implicated as being associated with apoptosis. In the present study the addition of 15-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HPETE) or 13-hydroperoxydodecadienoic acid (13-HPODE) to A3.01 T cells is shown to induce marked chromatin condensation coincident with

Certain selenoproteins such as GPX-1 (glutathione peroxidase-1) and TrxR1 (thioredoxin reductase-1) possess important antioxidant defence functions in vascular endothelial cells. Reduced selenoprotein activity during dietary selenium (Se) deficiency can result in a compensatory increase of other non-Se-dependent antioxidants, such as

Increased intracellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) expression and enhanced monocyte recruitment to the endothelium are critical steps in the early development of atherosclerosis. The 15-lipoxygenase 1 (15-LOX1) pathway can generate several proinflammatory eicosanoids that are known to enhance ICAM-1 expression

Prostaglandins & other lipid mediators, 90(3-4), 105-111 (2009-10-13)
Arachidonic acid, released from PLA(2) hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine, is converted to pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory mediators. Although lysophosphatidylcholine (lysoPC), another product, is known to be pro-inflammatory, the role of polyunsaturated lysoPCs is not clear. Here, we examined the role of arachidonoyl-lysoPC

The metabolism of arachidonic acid via the lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase pathways generates metabolites that regulate the inflammatory response. Although products of lipoxygenase are classically proinflammatory, recently it has been demonstrated that lipoxins, 15-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (15-HPETE) and 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid exhibit anti-inflammatory
