Current literature suggests that 5S-hydroxy-eicosatetraenoic acid (5S-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, also known as 5-KETE. While the gene has not yet been cloned, the biophysical properties of the human enzyme have been well characterised (Powell et al. 1992).
