If that is true, it would argue even more strongly in favor of the DHAA binding hypothesis, and in the antiviral activity of natural DHAA.
AA is very labile and subject to oxidation to DHAA, which in itself is also labile [3].
A possible role of DTT, added as a preservative, in preventing complete enzymatic oxidation of AA seems unlikely since the coupling of DHAA with OPDA should pull the reaction to completion.
In considering either the assessment or the monitoring of AA status of patients, it may be noteworthy that both AA and DHAA are biologically available, but normally only a trace (much less than 5%) of total AA equivalents circulate in plasma as DHAA [3, 7].
