Lipoxygenase (LO) enzymes catalyze the conversion of arachidonic acid (AA) into biologically active lipid mediators. Two members, 12/15-LO and 5-LO, regulate inflammatory responses and have been studied for their roles in atherogenesis. Both 12/15-LO and 5-LO inhibitors have been suggested as potential therapy to limit the development of atherosclerotic lesions. Here we used a genetic strategy to disrupt both 12/15-LO and 5-LO on an apolipoprotein E (apoE) atherosclerosis-susceptible background… CONTINUE READING
