Lipids

Lipids are organic small molecules, that are usually hydrophobic or amphiphillic. This group includes fat, fatty acids, waxes, triglycerides, sterols and phospholipids for example. Lipids are the main structural component of biological membranes of all cells. As such bacterial lipid structures and glycolipids can serve as pathogen-associated-molecular-patterns (PAMPs) and are recognized by our immune system. Various lipids of bacterial origin are therefore used as immunostimulants.

Docosahexaenoic Acid

Item number: Cay90310-50

DHA is an essential fatty acid and the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in neural tissues, especially in the retina and brain. DHA constitutes as much as 40% of the total PUFA pool in retinal and neuronal membranes. Supplementation of dietary DHA using fish oil inhibits the progression of atherosclerosis and delays...

Leukotriene B4
Leukotriene B4

Item number: Cay20110-25

Leukotriene B4 (LTB4) is a dihydroxy fatty acid derived from arachidonic acid through the 5-LO pathway. It promotes a number of leukocyte functions including aggregation, stimulation of ion fluxes, enhancement of lysosomal enzyme release, superoxide anion production, chemotaxis, and chemokinesis. In subnanomolar...

5(6)-EET is a fully racemic version of the enantiomeric forms biosynthesized from arachidonic acid (Cay-90010) by cytochrome P450 enzymes. In solution, 5(6)-EET degrades into 5,6-DiHET and 5(6)-delta-lactone, which can be converted to 5(6)-DiHET and quantified by GC-MS. In neuroendocrine cells, such as the anterior...
