Epidermal arachidonate lipoxygenase.


Guinea pig skin was found to display a high lipoxygenase activity, evidenced by the formation of a hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (HETE) from exogenous [14C]arachidonic acid. The lipoxygenase activity was localized to the epidermal layer of the skin, was completely inhibited by eicosatetraynoic acid (ETYA) and slightly enhanced by indomethacin. Susceptibility… (More)
