Abstract

Abstract Rabbit platelets were exposed to a reactive oxygen species (ROS) generating system (xanthine plus xanthine oxidase) to explore the effect of ROS on the formation of 12-hydroxy-5,8,10,14-eicosatetraenoic acid (12-HETE), thromboxane (TX) B 2, and 12-hydroxy-5,8,10-heptadecatrienoic acid (HHT) from exogenous arachidonic acid. Xanthine plus xanthine oxidase suppressed the production of 12-HETE, TXB 2, and HHT by 65–69%. This effect was reversed by addition of catalase to the ROS generating system but not by superoxide dismutase, mannitol, or dimethylsulfoxide, indicating that H 2O 2 is the responsible metabolite. These results suggest that H 2O 2 plays an important role in the regulation of platelet cyclo-oxygenase and lipoxygenase activities.
