5-Lipoxygenase (5-LO) is the initial enzyme that converts arachidonic acid to leukotrienes, which are important inflammatory and vasoconstrictive metabolites. It is activated in response to a number of stimuli, such as differentiation and allergen challenges. The 5-LO gene, abundantly expressed in placenta, lung, and leukocytes, encodes a protein of 674 amino acids with an apparent molecular weight of 78kDa. 5-LO is a Ca2+ and ATP-dependent enzyme that translocates from the cytosol to either a nuclear or plasma membrane compartment following activation. A proline-rich domain of 5-LO (amino acids 566-577) has been identified as a binding site for the PTyr-binding protein, Grb2. This Grb2 site links tyrosine kinases with activation and redistribution of 5-LO. Furthermore, tyrosine kinase inhibitors increase the activity of 5-LO and block the enzyme's subcellular redistribution.
