Addition of ferrous sulfate to a solution containing peroxy-methyl arachidonate resulted in cleavage of the peroxy group on the methyl arachidonate as assessed by absorption at 232nm. The results suggest that ferrous iron can be involved in the reduction of fatty acid peroxides and supports the possibility that the peroxidase component of the fatty acid cyclooxygenase occurs via a Fenton type reaction.
