Arachidonate Lipoxygenases


Arachidonic Acid Lipoxygenase

Lipoxygenase, Arachidonic Acid

Lipoxygenases, Arachidonate

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.- .
