Cayman Chemical has recently updated their Arachidonic Acid Cascade wall poster. This poster illustrates the metabolism of arachidonic acid by the cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenase, and CYP450 pathways, which produce many of the lipids that serve as second messengers in cellular signaling. These pathways are involved in several research areas including lipid biochemistry, cell biology, immunology, the cardiovascular system, and cancer.

Cayman Chemical has been supporting arachidonic acid cascade research for more than 40 years and offers an extensive collection of lipid metabolites, inhibitors, analytical standards, and assay kits to study these pathways. Sanbio is the exclusive BeNeLux distributor of Cayman Chemical for several years already.

We highly recommend to read the companion article, Crosstalk in the Arachidonic Acid Cascade, that explores the highly intertwined crosstalk between enzymes and metabolites in the arachidonic acid pathway.
