IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • Function
    Catalyzes the first step in leukotriene biosynthesis, and thereby plays a role in inflammatory processes.
  • Pathway
    Lipid metabolism; leukotriene A4 biosynthesis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the lipoxygenase family.
    Contains 1 lipoxygenase domain.
    Contains 1 PLAT domain.
  • Post-translational
    Serine phosphorylation by MAPKAPK2 is stimulated by arachidonic acid. Phosphorylation on Ser-523 by PKA has an inhibitory effect. Phosphorylation on Ser-272 prevents export from the nucleus.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus matrix. Nucleus membrane. Shuttles between cytoplasm and nucleus. Found exclusively in the nucleus, when phosphorylated on Ser-272. Calcium binding promotes translocation from the cytosol and the nuclear matrix to the nuclear envelope and membrane association.

Thank you for contacting us. The mouse 5-lipoxygenase, like the human protein is 77.9 kDa. You would therefore expect to see a band at around this size. However, this size can vary considerably depending on the cell lysate produced, how the gel is perf...
