Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
Unstable intermediate in the biosynthesis of LTB4 and LTC4. The naturally occuring free acid is a substrate for LTA4 hydrolase and LTC4 synthase and plays a central role in transcellular leukotrieneand lipoxin biosynthesis. Mobilizes Ca2+ in human neutrophils. Supplied as the methyl ester for greater stability.
