The corneal epithelium metabolizes arachidonic acid by a cytochrome P450-(CYP) mediated pathway to 12(R)hydroxy-5,8,10,14-eicosatrienoic acid [12(R)-HETE] and 12(R)hydroxy-5,8,14-eicosatrienoic acid [12(R)-HETrE]. Both metabolites possess potent inflammatory properties with 12(R)-HETrE being a powerful angiogenic factor and assume the role of inflammatory(More)
PURPOSE Alkali burning of the rabbit cornea is a well-established model for the study of anterior surface inflammation, neovascularization, and wound-healing processes. 12-hydroxyeicosanoids have been implicated as mediators of such responses. 12(S)-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (12[S]-HETE) is a lipoxygenase-derived arachidonate metabolite and(More)
