Creative Proteomics has developed a reliable and reproducible method using highly sensitive LC-MS/MS method for the rapid identification and quantification of Epoxyeicosatrienoic Acids (EETs) in different sample types, which can satisfy the needs of academic and industrial study in your lab.
Epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs), which are synthesized from arachidonic acid by cytochrome P450 epoxygenases (CYP), function primarily as autocrine and paracrine effectors in the cardiovascular system and kidney. They modulate ion transport and gene expression, producing vasorelaxation as well as anti-inflammatory and pro-fibrinolytic effects.

EETs are incorporated into the sn-2 position of phospholipids and are rapidly mobilized when a cell is treated with a Ca2+ ionophore, suggesting that they may play a role in phospholipid-mediated signal transduction processes. Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) converts EETs to dihydroxyeicosatrienoic acids (DHETs), and inhibition of sEH is a potential approach for enhancing the biological activity of EETs. EETs also undergo chain-elongation and β-oxidation, and the accumulation of partial β-oxidation products increases when sEH is inhibited. Some functional effects of EETs occur through activation of either the guanine nucleotide binding protein Gαs or the Src signal transduction pathways, suggesting that EETs act by binding to membrane receptors.
The combination of MS instrument and liquid chromatography (LC) can effectively separate target lipid molecules from complex samples. High-quality and accurate lipid level analysis helps to study the changes in the content of EETs under physiological and other pathological conditions, and accelerate the analysis of biomarkers and related disease mechanisms.
