Unlike resolvins E1 and E2, both of which are biosynthesised by neutrophils via the 5-lipoxygenase pathway, resolvin E3 (RvE3) is biosynthesised in eosinophils or resident macrophages via the 15-lipoxygenase (ALOX15) pathway. 18(S)-hydroxyeicosapentaenoic acid (18(S)-HEPE) is oxidised by ALOX15 (possibly through C13-hydrogen abstraction) into a number of dihydroxy-HEPEs including 17(R),18(S)-diHEPE (18(S)-RvE3) (Isobe et al. 2012, Isobe et al. 2013).
