Background: 5-Lipoxygenase (5-LO, ALOX5) is an important catalytic enzyme responsible for the biosynthesis of leukotriene LTA4 from arachidonic acid (1,2). Leukotriene synthesis also requires 5-lipoxygenase-activating protein (FLAP, ALOX5AP), a nuclear membrane-bound protein that binds arachidonic acid and is thought to activate 5-LO. A number of related leukotrienes (i.e. B4, C4, D4) are derived from LTA4 and together these lipid mediators function in immune reaction regulation. 5-LO is primarily expressed in polymorphonuclear leukocytes, peripheral blood monocytes, macrophages, and mast cells (1,3). Overexpression of 5-LO protein is seen in certain cancer cells and is associated with poor diagnosis (1,4). Depending upon the cell type, 5-LO is localized to either the cytosol or the nucleus of quiescent cells (5). Following stimulation, 5-LO translocates to the nucleus and associates with FLAP to catalyze LTA4 synthesis (2,3). Phosphorylation of specific residues can regulate 5-LO enzymatic activity. Phosphorylation of 5-LO at Ser523 by PKA family kinases inhibits oxygenase activity (6,7) while MAPKAP2 and ERK family kinase phosphorylation at Ser271 and Ser663 stimulates 5-LO enzymatic activity in vivo (8,9).

Background: Cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) is a ubiquitously distributed enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of the sn-2 acyl bond of glycerolipids to produce lysophospholipids and release arachidonic acid (1). cPLA2 has been implicated in diverse cellular responses such as mitogenesis, differentiation, inflammation and cytotoxicity (1). Calcium binding to the amino-terminal CalB domain of cPLA2 promotes the translocation of cPLA2 from cytosol to membrane, where cPLA2 cleaves arachidonic acid from natural membrane (2). Phosphorylation of cPLA2 by MAPK (p42/44 and p38) at Ser505 (3,4) and Ser727 (5) stimulates its catalytic activity.

Background: Cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) is a member of the cytochrome P450 superfamily of enzymes. CYP2D6 is located in the endoplasmic reticulum where it oxidizes substrates such as drugs and environmental chemicals (1,2). CYP2D6 metabolizes more than 25% of current commonly used drugs including antidepressants, antipsychotics, analgesics, beta-adrenergic blocking agents, antiarrythmics, and antiemetics. The CYP2D6 gene is highly polymorphic in humans, resulting in phenotypes that vary from poor metabolizer to super metabolizer. A patient's CYP2D6 genotype was shown to be a good predictor of drug response and side effects and is thus used to guide treatments (3-5). Although abundantly expressed in liver, CYP2D6 is also expressed in other organs including brain. In brain, CYP2D6 and other CYP family members are expressed in a cell-specific, region-specific manner (6-8). CYP2D6 functions as a neuroprotective enzyme that increases with age and is induced by nicotine and alcohol (9,10).

Background: Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) are a widely conserved family of serine/threonine protein kinases involved in many cellular programs, such as cell proliferation, differentiation, motility, and death. The p44/42 MAPK (Erk1/2) signaling pathway can be activated in response to a diverse range of extracellular stimuli including mitogens, growth factors, and cytokines (1-3), and research investigators consider it an important target in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer (4). Upon stimulation, a sequential three-part protein kinase cascade is initiated, consisting of a MAP kinase kinase kinase (MAPKKK or MAP3K), a MAP kinase kinase (MAPKK or MAP2K), and a MAP kinase (MAPK). Multiple p44/42 MAP3Ks have been identified, including members of the Raf family, as well as Mos and Tpl2/COT. MEK1 and MEK2 are the primary MAPKKs in this pathway (5,6). MEK1 and MEK2 activate p44 and p42 through phosphorylation of activation loop residues Thr202/Tyr204 and Thr185/Tyr187, respectively. Several downstream targets of p44/42 have been identified, including p90RSK (7) and the transcription factor Elk-1 (8,9). p44/42 are negatively regulated by a family of dual-specificity (Thr/Tyr) MAPK phosphatases, known as DUSPs or MKPs (10), along with MEK inhibitors, such as U0126 and PD98059.

Background: In response to cytokines, stress, and chemotactic factors, MAP kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MAPKAPK-2) is rapidly phosphorylated and activated. It has been shown that MAPKAPK-2 is a direct target of p38 MAPK (1). Multiple residues of MAPKAPK-2 are phosphorylated in vivo in response to stress. However, only four residues (Thr25, Thr222, Ser272, and Thr334) are phosphorylated by p38 MAPK in an in vitro kinase assay (2). Phosphorylation at Thr222, Ser272, and Thr334 appears to be essential for the activity of MAPKAPK-2 (2). Thr25 is phosphorylated by p42 MAPK in vitro, but is not required for the activation of MAPKAPK-2 (2).

Background: Cyclooxygenase1 (Cox1) and cyclooxygenase2 (Cox2), family members with 60% homology in humans, catalyze prostaglandin production from arachidonic acid (1,2). While Cox1 expression is constitutive in most tissues, Cox2 expression is induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and peptidoglycan (PGN) (3). PGN activates Ras, leading to phosphorylation of Raf at Ser338 and Erk1/2 at Tyr204. The activation of MAP kinase signaling results in subsequent activation of IKKα/β, phosphorylation of IκBα at Ser32/36, and NF-κB activation. Finally, activation of the transcription factor NF-κB is responsible for the induction of Cox2 expression (4). Investigators have shown that LPS and PGN induce the clinical manifestations of arthritis and bacterial infections, such as inflammation, fever, and septic shock (5). Research studies have indicated that Cox1 and Cox2 may also play a role in the neuropathology of Alzheimer's disease by potentiating γ-secretase activity and β-amyloid generation (6).

Background: Diacylglycerol (DAG) lipases comprise two enzymes called DAG lipase α and β, which are the products of two related genes (1). DAG lipases are transmembrane proteins composed of a short amino-terminal intracellular domain, four transmembrane domains, and a large carboxy-terminal cytoplasmic domain containing the active site. These enzymes are responsible for the biosynthesis of 2-acylglycerol from diacylglycerol in a calcium-dependent manner (1). One of the major endocannabinoid ligands that activate cannabinoid receptors, 2-arachidonyl glycerol (2-AG), is produced by DAG lipases (2). Research studies suggest that DAG lipase α is the isoform primarily responsible for the central production of 2-AG (3). DAG lipase β has been implicated in studies of 2-AG production at the periphery in specific cell types and pathophysiological contexts, such as in hepatic stellate cells during alcohol induced fatty liver (4).

Background: Multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (MRP1/ABCC1) is a member of the MRP subfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters (1). MRP1/ABCC1 protein functions as an organic anion transporter. It has a broad range of substrates, including antineoplastic or therapeutic agents and the glutathione (GSH) conjugates of these compounds. MRP1/ABCC1 also transports physiological substrates such as folates, GSH and GSH disulfide (GSSG) conjugates of steroids, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins (2,3).Although MRP1/ABCC1 is generally expressed in normal tissue, upregulation of MRP1/ABCC1 has been found in a variety of solid tumors, including small cell lung cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer (1,4,5). Research studies show that overexpression of MRP1/ABCC1 facilitates the elimination of therapeutic agents from cancer cells and confers drug resistance in those patients. Research studies also show that elevated expression of MRP1/ABCC1 is a negative prognostic marker for breast cancer and small cell lung cancer, as the level of MRP1/ABCC1 is predictive of the response and toxicity of chemotherapeutic agents in those patients (6-10).
