Arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, 12S-type (ALOX12) catalyses the formation of 12-oxo-eicosatetraenoic acid (12-oxoETE) from arachidonic acid. This conversion has been observed when normal human epidermis is exposed to arachidonic acid and with the purified recombinant enzyme in vitro (Anton & Vila 2000).
