|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the lipoxygenase family.|
|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. Converts arachidonic acid into 12- hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid/12-HPETE and 15- hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid/15-HPETE. Also converts linoleic acid to 13-hydroperoxyoctadecadienoic acid. May also act on (12S)- hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid/(12S)-HPETE to produce hepoxilin A3. Probably plays an important role in the immune and inflammatory responses. Through the oxygenation of membrane-bound phosphatidylethanolamine in macrophages may favor clearance of apoptotic cells during inflammation by resident macrophages and prevent an autoimmune response associated with the clearance of apoptotic cells by inflammatory monocytes. In parallel, may regulate actin polymerization which is crucial for several biological processes, including macrophage function. May also regulate macrophage function through regulation of the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor signaling pathway. Finally, it is also involved in the cellular response to IL13/interleukin-13. In addition to its role in the immune and inflammatory responses, may play a role in epithelial wound healing in the cornea maybe through production of lipoxin A4. May also play a role in endoplasmic reticulum stress response and the regulation of bone mass.|

Arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase, also known as 15 LOX or LOG15, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the ALOX15 gene. This gene is mapped to 17p13.2. It is found that ALOX15 is a mutator gene. ALOX15 gene product is implicated in antiinflammation, membrane remodeling, and cancer development/metastasis. Loss of the TP53 gene, or gain-of-function activities resulting from the expression of its mutant forms regulates ALOX15 promoter activity in human and in mouse, albeit in directionally opposite manners.
