5-lipoxygenase-activating protein stimulates the utilization of arachidonic acid by 5-lipoxygenase.


5-Lipoxygenase (5-LO) and its activating protein (FLAP) are both required for cellular leukotriene (LT) synthesis, with 5-LO catalyzing both the synthesis of (5S)-5-hydroperoxy-6,8,11,14-eicosatetraenoic acid (5-HPETE) from arachidonic acid and the subsequent synthesis of LTA4 from 5-HPETE. We have previously expressed both human 5-LO and human FLAP to high… (More)
