Arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase

5-lipoxygenase, Arachidonate 5-Lipoxygenase, 5-LOX
This gene encodes a member of the lipoxygenase gene family and plays a dual role in the synthesis of leukotrienes from arachidonic acid. The encoded protein, which is expressed specifically in bone marrow-derived cells, catalyzes the conversion of arachidonic acid to 5(S)-hydroperoxy-6-trans-8,11,14-cis-eicosatetraenoic acid, and further to the allylic epoxide 5(S)-trans-7,9-trans-11,14-cis-eicosatetrenoic acid (leukotriene A4). Leukotrienes are important mediators of a number of inflammatory and allergic conditions. Mutations in the promoter region of this gene lead to a diminished response to antileukotriene drugs used in the treatment of asthma and may also be associated with atherosclerosis and several cancers. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012] (from NCBI)

Malanchi et al., London, United Kingdom. In Nature, Jan 2016
Genetic or pharmacological inhibition of the leukotriene-generating enzyme arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase (Alox5) abrogates neutrophil pro-metastatic activity and consequently reduces metastasis.
Exploring the role of chloro and methyl substitutions in 2-phenylthiomethyl-benzoindole derivatives for 5-LOX enzyme inhibition.
Filosa et al., Napoli, Italy. In Eur J Med Chem, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: Following the results we previously reported on a series of ethyl 2-phenylthiomethyl 5-hydroxyindole-3-carboxylate derivatives as 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) inhibitors, in order to obtain a more selective compound with respect to the previous generation of derivatives, we decided to modify the structure of the core ligand.
The role of lipoxygenases in pathophysiology; new insights and future perspectives.

5-LOX is a distinct isoform playing an important role in asthma and inflammation.
Eicosanoid pathway in colorectal cancer: Recent updates.
Banerjee et al., Ankara, Turkey. In World J Gastroenterol, Dec 2015
Oftentimes, these autacoids work in an antagonistic and highly temporal manner in inflammation; therefore, inhibition of the pro-inflammatory COX-2 or 5-LOX enzymes may subsequently inhibit the formation of their essential products, or shunt substrates from one pathway to another, leading to undesirable side-effects.
D-002 (beeswax alcohols): concurrent joint health benefits and gastroprotection.
Carbajal et al., Havana, Cuba. In Indian J Pharm Sci, Mar 2015
The search of safer substances for managing inflammatory conditions is updated, a challenge wherein dual COX/5-LOX inhibitors have a place.
Flavocoxid, a nutraceutical approach to blunt inflammatory conditions.
Altavilla et al., Messina, Italy. In Mediators Inflamm, 2013
Flavocoxid is a mixed extract containing baicalin and catechin and it acts as a dual balanced inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and COX-2 peroxidase enzyme activities with a significant inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) enzyme activity in vitro.
Conversion of human 5-lipoxygenase to a 15-lipoxygenase by a point mutation to mimic phosphorylation at Serine-663.
Newcomer et al., Baton Rouge, United States. In Faseb J, 2012
phosphorylation of 5-LOX at S663 not only down-regulates leukotriene synthesis but also stimulates lipoxin production in inflammatory cells that do not express 15-LOX, redirecting lipid mediator biosynthesis to the production of mediators of inflammation.
