A selective inhibitor of arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase scavenging peroxide activator.

Abstract

A novel compound termed YT-18 (2,3-dihydro-2,4,6,7-tetramethyl-2-[(4-phenyl-1-piperazinyl) methyl]-5-benzofuranamine) selectively inhibited 5-lipoxygenases of porcine leukocytes (IC50 value, 7.5 microM), human leukocytes (1.5 microM), and rat basophilic leukemia cells (14 microM), which are responsible for bioactive leukotriene synthesis. In contrast, the… (More)
