PURPOSE To examine for the expression of 15-lipoxygenase 1 (15-LOX1) and 15-LOX2 in human retinal microvascular endothelial cells (HRMVECs) and study the role of arachidonic acid metabolites of these enzymes in angiogenesis. METHODS Quantitative RT-PCR and reverse-phase HPLC analyses were used to determine 15-LOX1/2 expression and their arachidonic acid(More)
In addition to their role in many vital cellular functions, arachidonic acid (AA) and its eicosanoid metabolites are involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases, including atherosclerosis and cancer. To understand the potential mechanisms by which these lipid molecules could influence the disease processes, particularly cardiovascular diseases, we(More)
