ALOX15 (Arachidonate 15-Lipoxygenase): ALOX15, or arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase, is an enzyme that catalyzes the oxygenation of polyunsaturated fatty acids in lipids. It is implicated in the biosynthesis of bioactive lipid mediators that are involved in inflammatory and immune responses. ALOX15's activity is crucial in the metabolism of arachidonic acid to produce leukotrienes and lipoxins, compounds that have both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory effects. The enzyme's function is significant in the pathophysiology of diseases such as asthma, atherosclerosis, and cancer. Variations in the ALOX15 gene can influence the enzyme's expression and activity, affecting an individual's susceptibility to these diseases.
