Forward strand gene: arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase

Also known as: 5-LOX, ENSG00000012779

Function: Catalyzes the oxygenation of arachidonic acid to 5-hydroperoxyicosatetraenoic acid (5-HPETE) followed by the dehydration of the hydroperoxide into an epoxide, 5,6- oxidoicosatetraenoic acid (LTA4), thereby participates in the first step in leukotriene biosynthesis and in the … Source: UniProt
