Lipidomics update - August, 2017

The lipidomics update provides an overview of developments in lipid research. Each month we offer a fresh collection of research, news and events for the specialist and the interested non-specialist alike.

LIPID MAPS® highlights

Lipidomics Services - LIPID MAPS methodology and protocols are freely available in our Lipidomics methods and protocols sections. MS standards are available from Avanti Polar Lipids, Inc.

Lipid of the month

15R-hydroxy-12S,14R-dioxolane-EET

15R-hydroxy-12S,14R-dioxolane-EET (15R-hydroxy-12S,14R-dioxolane-5Z,8Z,10E-eicosatrienoic acid) is an eicosanoid containing a 1,2-dioxolane (cyclic peroxide) group. Dioxolanes of this type have been generated from enantiomers of 14,15-EET by two mammalian LOX enzymes, 15-LOX-1 and platelet-type 12-LOX. This type of transformation could occur naturally with the co-occurrence of LOX and cytochrome P450 or peroxygenase enzymes.
