physiological function
LTB4 levels are persistently elevated in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ALI, and the leukotriene levels in pulmonary edema fluid are significantly higher in ALI patients compared to control patients with hydrostatic pulmonary edema. In addition, LTB4 level is increased in lung homogenates, and BALF of patients with IPF and the level of LTB4 correlate with the extent of fibrosis in histological sections
additional information
LTA4H folds into three domains and creates a deep cleft harboring the catalytic Zn2+ site, forming the active site with an L-shaped hydrophobic pocket deep into the protein
