We have found that corticosteroids do not act at the(More)
12(S)-Hydroxyheptadeca-5Z,8E,10E-trienoic acid (12- HHT) is an enzymatic product of prostaglandin H(2) (PGH(2)) derived from cyclooxygenase (COX)-mediated arachidonic acid metabolism. Despite the high level of 12-HHT present in tissues and bodily fluids, its precise function remains largely unknown. In this study, we found that 12-HHT treatment in HaCaT(More)
