abstract Leukotriene E4 (LTE4) was transaminated to 5(S)-hydroxy-6(R)-S-(2-keto- 3-thiopropionyl)-7,9-trans-11,14-cis- eicosatetraenoic acid (tentatively designated as LTG4) by cysteine conjugate aminotransferase I purified from rat liver supernatant in the presence of alpha- ketoglutaric acid or alpha-keto-gamma-methiolbutyric acid. The transamination activity was present in the kidney as well as in the liver, but not in the lung or leukocytes.
