15-Lipoxygenase, Arachidonic Acid
Arachidonate 15 Lipoxygenase
Arachidonic Acid 15 Lipoxygenase
Arachidonic Acid 15-Lipoxygenase
An enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of arachidonic acid to yield 15-hydroperoxyarachidonate (15-HPETE) which is rapidly converted to 15-hydroxy-5,8,11,13-eicosatetraenoate (15-HETE). The 15-hydroperoxides are preferentially formed in NEUTROPHILS and LYMPHOCYTES.
