5-Lipoxygenase (5-LO) initiates the synthesis of leukotrienes (LTs) from arachidonic acid, primarily in certain leukocyte populations. CAY10606 is a potent, reversible inhibitor of 5-LO, both in cell-free assays (IC50 = 86 nM) and in intact neutrophils (IC50 = 230 nM).1 It prevents the production of LTs in whole blood, whether 5-LO is activated with the calcium ionophore A23187 (IC50 = 1.6 μM) or formyl peptide (fMLP) following priming with lipopolysaccharide (IC50 = 830 nM). In rats subjected to carrageenan-induced pleurisy, CAY10606 significantly reduces both LT biosynthesis and the inflammatory reaction.1

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
