5S-HpETE is reduced to 5S-HETE by GPX1

The cytosol of rabbit lung alveolar macrophages contains a high amount of glutathione peroxidase 1 (GPX1), which reduces 5-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (5-HPETE) to 5-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (5-HETE) in the presence of glutathione (GSH) (Chiba et al. 1999). Current literature suggests that 5-HETE itself does not appear to play a significant role in biological signalling. However, it can be further oxidised by a 5-hydroxy-eicosatetraenoic acid dehydrogenase (5-HEDH) to form the bioactive 5-oxo-eicosatetraenoic acid (5-oxoETE) aka 5-KETE.
