Background: Leukotriene A-4 hydrolase; also known as LTA-4 hydrolase; Leukotriene A (4) hydrolase; LTA4H and LTA4; is cytoplasm protein which belongs to thepeptidase M1 family. LTA4H hydrolyzes an epoxide moiety of leukotriene A4 (LTA-4) to form leukotriene B4 (LTB-4). This enzyme also has some peptidase activity. The leukotrienes (LTs) are a class of structurally related lipid mediators involved in the development and maintenance of inflammatory and allergic reactions. In the biosynthesis of LTs; arachidonic acid was converted into the unstable intermediate epoxide LTA4; which may in turn be conjugated with glutathione to form the spasmogenic LTC4; or hydrolyzed into the proinflammatory lipid mediator LTB4 in a reaction catalyzed by Leukotriene A4 hydrolase (LTA4H). LTB4 is a classical chemoattractant of human neutrophils and triggers adherence and aggregation of leukocytes to vascular endothelium; and also modulates immune responses. As a bifunctional zinc metalloenzyme; LTA4H also exhibits an anion-dependant arginyl aminopeptidase activity of high efficiency and specificity in addition to its epoxide hydrolase activity. LTA4H is regarded as a therapeutic target for inflammation.
