Platelet-derived 12-hydroperoxy-5,8,10,14-icosatetraenoic acid (12-HPETE) cannot increase the synthesis of leukotriene B4 metabolites by human neutrophils activated by 1-0-hexadecyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (Paf Acether) at 10(-9) and 10(-8) M in contrast to 1 microM arachidonic acid. The combination of the 3 inducers at various concentrations resulted in a potentiation of the formation of leukotriene B4 metabolites suggesting that multiregulatory steps play a key role to govern the 5-lipoxygenase activity. These results suggest that the use of agents that can act synergistically to produce leukotrienes may be worthwhile investigating to understand some aspects of the leukotriene biosynthesis.
