Accepted name: hydroperoxy icosatetraenoate dehydratase
Reaction: a hydroperoxyicosatetraenoate = an oxoicosatetraenoate + H2O
Glossary: (12R)-HPETE = (5Z,8Z,10E,12R,14Z)-12-hydroperoxyicosa-5,8,10,14-tetraenoate
(12S)-HPETE = (5Z,8Z,10E,12S,14Z)-12-hydroperoxyicosa-5,8,10,14-tetraenoate
12-KETE = 12-oxo-ETE = (5Z,8Z,10E,14Z)-12-oxoicosa-5,8,10,14-tetraenoate
(8R)-HPETE = (5Z,8R,9E,11Z,14Z)-8-hydroperoxyicosa-5,9,11,14-tetraenoate
(15R)-HPETE = (5Z,8Z,11Z,13E,15R)-15-hydroperoxyicosa-5,8,11,13-tetraenoate
Other name(s): epidermal lipoxygenase-3 (ambiguous); eLOX3 (ambiguous)
Systematic name: hydroperoxyicosatetraenoate hydro-lyase (oxoicosatetraenoate-forming)
Comments: Binds Fe2+. The mammalian enzymes accept a range of hydroperoxyicosatetraenoates (HPETE). The human enzyme has highest activity with (12R)-HPETE, followed by (12S)-HPETE and (15R)-HPETE with much lower efficiency. The murine enzyme has highest activity with (8R)-HPETE followed by (8S)-HPETE. All HPETE isoforms are converted to the corresponding oxoicosatetraenoate forms (KETE) [2]. The enzymes also catalyse the reaction of EC, hydroperoxy icosatetraenoate isomerase.
