Several cytochrome P450s (CYPs) convert arachidonic acid to 19-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (19-HETE). The CYPs and their references are as follows: CYP2C8 (Bylund et al. 1998); CYP2C9 (Bylund et al. 1998); CYP2C19 (Bylund et al. 1998); CYP4A11 (Gainer et al. 2005); CYP2U1 (Chuang et al. 2004); CYP1A1, CYP1A2, CYP1B1 (Choudhary et al. 2004).
