Metabolite Identification
Common Name 13-HETE
Description 13-Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid is one of the main metabolites of 15-lipoxygenases (15-LOXs), are endogenous ligands of PPARr. It can inhibit cell proliferation and induce apoptosis in several types of human cancer. 13-HETE is an arachidonic acid metabolite in rat liver microsomes, and is a metabolite of red algae.Hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acids (HETEs) are formed in numerous cell types by enzymatically-mediated hydroxylation of arachidonic acid. There are three distinct enzymes involved in HETE biosynthesis:lipoxygenase (LOX), prostaglandin H (PGH) synthase, and cytochrome P-450. LOX- and PGH-synthase-mediated arachidonic acid metabolism is normally highly stereoselective.
