Connecting Lipoxygenase Function to Structure by Electron Paramagnetic Resonance

Abstract

CONSPECTUS: Lipoxygenase enzymes insert oxygen in a polyunsaturated lipid, yielding a hydroperoxide product. When the acyl chain is arachidonate, with three cis-pentadiene units, 12 positionally and stereochemically different products might result. The plant lipids, linoleate and linolenate, have, respectively, four and eight potential oxygen insertion… (More)
