Alternative Name ALOX5AP / FLAP (ALOX5AP Antibody Abstract)
Background Genetic variations in ALOX5AP may be a cause of susceptibility to ischemic stroke (ISCHSTR) [MIM:601367], also known as cerebrovascular accident or cerebral infarction. A stroke is an acute neurologic event leading to death of neural tissue of the brain and resulting in loss of motor, sensory and/or cognitive function. Ischemic strokes, resulting from vascular occlusion, is considered to be a highly complex disease consisting of a group of heterogeneous disorders with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. Note=Genetic variations in ALOX5AP may be associated with susceptibility to myocardial infarction. Involvement in myocardial infarction is however unclear: according to some authors (PubMed:14770184), a 4-SNP haplotype in ALOX5AP confers risk of myocardial infarction, while according to other (PubMed:17304054) ALOX5AP is not implicated in this condition. Required for leukotriene biosynthesis by ALOX5 (5-lipoxygenase). Anchors ALOX5 to the membrane. Binds arachidonic acid, and could play an essential role in the transfer of arachidonic acid to ALOX5. Binds to MK-886, a compound that blocks the biosynthesis of leukotrienes.Synonyms: Arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase-activating protein, MK-886-binding protein
