BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY
Leukotriene E4 stimulates airway smooth muscles from different animal species, and is less potent than C4 in contracting isolated guinea pig ileum (Ref. 0022).

CHROMATOGRAM DATA

SOURCE
When leukotriene C4 was injected into male subjects, leukotriene E4 was found as a major urinary metabolite (Ref. 0050). Incubation of leukotriene D4 with human polymorphonuclear leukocytes produced leukotriene E4 (Ref. 0051).
CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS
(Ref. 1028)
[Table 0001]
METABOLISM
Leukotriene D4 is converted to E4 by extracellular action of a dipeptidase released from granules of human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (Ref. 0051). Leukotriene E4 is transformed to leukotriene F4 by g-glultamyltransferase in the presence of glutathione, and to N-acetyl leukotriene E4 by incubation with rat liver microsomes (Ref. 0052).
