    Sammanfattning : Eicosanoids are known to be involved in many different aspects of eukaryotic physiology and pathology. Notably, over the past 10 years much attention has been given to cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) due to its involvement in colorectal cancer. Less is known about the other major branch of arachidonic acid metabolism, namely the lipoxygenases (LO). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Biosynthesis of leukotriene B4 in hematological malignancies

    Författare :Gudmundur Runarsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; LTB 4; 5-LO; cPLA 2; iPLA 2; AML; B-ALL; B-CLL;

    Sammanfattning : Leukotrienes (LT) are biologically active metabolites of the fatty acid arachidonic acid (AA). After liberation of AA by phospholipase A 2 (PLA 2), this fatty acid can be converted to leukotrienes, lipoxins, prostaglandins or thromboxane. The conversion of AA to LTA 4 is catalyzed by five-lipoxygenase (5-LO). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies on coactosin-like protein interaction with 5-lipoxygenase

    Författare :Marija Rakonjac; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Leukotrienes (LTs) are proinflammatory lipid mediators derived from polyunsaturated arachidonic acid, which is ester-bound at the sn-2 position of glycerol in cellular phospholipid bilayers. In LTs biosynthesis, 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) represents the key enzyme, which catalyzes two initial steps. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Biosynthesis and biological role of leukotrienes in human lymphocytes

    Författare :Yilmaz Mahshid; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Leukotrienes (LT) are biologically active metabolites of arachidonic acid. The key enzyme in leukotriene biosynthesis is 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO). Leukotriene B4 exerts its biological effect mainly via BLT1, the high affinity receptor for LTB4. Leukotriene B4 is a potent proinflammatory and chemotactic mediator. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The enzymatic machinery of leukotriene biosynthesis : Studies on ontogenic expression, interactions and function

    Författare :Tobias Strid; Sven Hammarström; Mats Söderström; Ralf Morgenstern; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Leukotrienes (LTs) are biologically active arachidonic acid (AA) derivatives generated by the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) pathway. They are produced by myeloid cells. 5-LO converts AA to LTA4 in cooperation with 5-LO activating protein (FLAP). LTA4 is converted to LTB4, by LTA4-hydrolase (LTA4H) or to LTC4 by LTC4-synthase (LTC4S). LÄS MER
