|Other Names||Arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, 12S-type, 12S-LOX, 12S-lipoxygenase, Lipoxin synthase 12-LO, 332-, Platelet-type lipoxygenase 12, ALOX12, 12LO, LOG12|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8877b was selected from the C-term region of human ALOX12. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Non-heme iron-containing dioxygenase that catalyzes the stereo-specific peroxidation of free and esterified polyunsaturated fatty acids generating a spectrum of bioactive lipid mediators. Mainly converts arachidonic acid to (12S)- hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid/(12S)-HPETE but can also metabolize linoleic acid. Has a dual activity since it also converts leukotriene A4/LTA4 into both the bioactive lipoxin A4/LXA4 and lipoxin B4/LXB4. Through the production of specific bioactive lipids like (12S)-HPETE it regulates different biological processes including platelet activation. It also probably positively regulates angiogenesis through regulation of the expression of the vascular endothelial growth factor. Plays a role in apoptotic process, promoting the survival of vascular smooth muscle cells for instance. May also play a role in the control of cell migration and proliferation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol. Membrane. Note=Membrane association is stimulated by EGF|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in vascular smooth muscle cells.|
