Biological Activity

Specific, non-competitve 15-lipoxygenase (15-LOX) inhibitor (Ki = 197nM) that has no demonstrable effect on 5-LOX, 12-LOX, COX-1 or COX-2 (IC50 = 0.54 μM for 15-LOX in rabbit reticulocytes). Lacks non-specific antioxidant properties and prevents atherogenesis via regulation of monocyte-macrophage enrichment in vivo.
