    Author : Susanne Tornhamre; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Human platelets lack 5-lipoxygenase activity, but possess enzymatic capacity to transformthe unstable epoxide leukotriene (LT)A4 to the potent inflammatory agent LTC4 and lipoxins, agroup of trihydroxylated tetraene-containing eicosanoids, which recently have been suggestedto have an anti-inflammatory role.
