This study sought to assess putative pathways involved in the anti-inflammatory effects of 17,18-epoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (17,18-EpETE), as measured by a decrease in the contractile reactivity and Ca(2+) sensitivity of TNF-α-pretreated human bronchi. Tension measurements performed in the presence of 12-(3-adamantan-1-yl-ureido)-dodecanoic acid (AUDA), a soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH)-specific inhibitor, demonstrated that 17,18-EpETE reduced the reactivity of TNF-α-pretreated tissues.
