In detail, the rank of affinity toward [CysLT.sub.1]R is LTD4 > LTC4 > LTE4 whereas for [CysT.sub.2]R is LTC4 = LTD4 >> LTE4 [9, 10].
Nevertheless, the administration in rat and dog of LY203647, described as a potent and selective antagonist of responses to both LTD4 and LTE4, did not alter the magnitude of myocardial ischemia [138].
Leukotrienes LTA4, LTB4, LTC4, LTD4 and LTE4 are metabolized at different levels via the 5-1ipoxygenase pathway in response to certain antigens causing bronchoconstriction, increased mucous production, and inflammation (Bisgaard, 2001; Coffey & Peters-Golden, 2003; Krawiec & Wenzel, 1999; Lasley, 2003).
It inhibits the binding of three leukotrienes (LTC4, LTD4 and LTE4) that are responsible for smooth muscle constriction and hyperresponsiveness after contact with an allergen challenge including exercise (Krawiec & Wenzel, 1999).
These endogenous mediators show different affinity toward their receptors [2]: LTD4 indeed is the most potent ligand for CysLTR-1 followed by LTC4 and LTE4 [3], whereas LTC4 and LTD4 equally bound CysLTR-2, while LTE4 shows only low affinity to this receptor [1].
They exert these effects by inhibiting pro-inflammatory arachidonic acid (AA) metabolites, release of platelet-activating factor (PAF), increasing formation of anti-inflammatory eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) derivatives.6,7 In most studies, omega-3 fatty acid addition to diets reduced production of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane B2 (TXB2), LTE4 and LTB4 from inflammatory cells.
Sisteinil lokotrienler (LTC4, LTD4, LTE4) ve LTB4 RSV enfeksiyonlu cocuklarda ve fare orneklerinde defalarca nazofaringeal ve trakeobronsiyal salgi larda saptanmislardir (48).
The exposure of eosinophils to LTE4 also induces cAMP production [11].
The most reproducible and informative biomarker to distinguish NERD from ATA is a high-level urinary LTE4 (Table 1).
5-LO generates a wide variety of mediators, through the action of specialized terminal enzymes variously expressed in different cell types, which act on the initial 5-LO products and their immediate derivatives, like leukotriene (LT) A4, to yield leukotriene B4 and the cysteinyl-leukotrienes (CysLT), LTC4, LTD4, and LTE4 [13-15].
Urinary leukotriene E4 (LTE4, a validated marker of proinflammatory cysteinyl leukotriene production) and 11-dehydro-thromboxane B2 (11-DHTXB2) were quantified using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry [34].
The 5-LO pathway leads to the formation of two biologically relevant classes of leukotrienes (LTs): non-cysteinyl LTs such as [LTB.sub.4];and cysteinyl-LTs (cys-LTs) such as [LTC.sub.4],LTD4, and LTE4 [15]; and the activity of 5-LO seems to be a common step in LXA4 synthesis [16].
