Antilipoxygenase activity of amyrin triterpenes.


Triterpenes--alpha-amyrin acetate, beta-amyrin acetate and beta-amyrin were tested for their effects on the synthesis of 5-lipoxygenase products in human neutrophils. All the triterpenes reduced 5-HETE synthesis without effect on LTB4 synthesis. The relative effects suggest that 5-HETE inhibition can explain the antiarthritic activity possessed by these… (More)
