5(S)-HEPE is produced by 5-lipoxygenase catalyzed oxidation of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). While the synthesis of 5(S)-HEPE from EPA by tissue homogenates has been demonstrated,{1144,1145} the biological activity of 5(S)-HEPE is poorly documented. It remains to be determined whether this activity differs substantially from that of 5(S)-HETE (Item No. 34230).
