This antibody is specific for the ~80 kDa 5-LO phosphorylated at Ser523 in Western blots of rat hippocampal lysates.
The enzyme 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) plays a key role in regulating the production of leukotrienes (LT ) (Funk, 2001). Overproduction of LT contributes to several diseases, most notably chronic inflammatory diseases, including asthma (Drazen et al., 1994), fibrosis (Wilborn et al., 1996) and atherosclerosis (Dwyer et al., 2004). Recent work has demonstrated that the activity of 5-LO is regulated by PKA phosphorylation of serine-523 in 5-LO (Luo et al., 2004). Under normal conditions, this phosphorylation may be important in limiting inflammation. Abnormal signaling through cAMP and PKA, then, could contribute to a variety of diseases, including those characterized by chronic inflammation. The phospho-pecific antibody to Ser523 on 5-LO is thus likely to provide a valuable toll for studies of the role of 5-LO regulation in diseases such as asthma, fibrosis and atherosclerosis.
