Arachidonate Lipoxygenases

Enzymes catalyzing the oxidation of Arachidonic Acid to hydroperoxyarachidonates. These products are then rapidly converted by a Peroxidase to Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic Acids. The positional specificity of the enzyme reaction varies from Tissue to Tissue. The final Lipoxygenase pathway leads to the Leukotrienes. EC 1.13.11.- .
