 Synonyms & Historicals
Eicosanoids .
Icosanoids .
A class of compounds named after and generally derived from C20 fatty acids (EICOSANOIC ACIDS) that includes PROSTAGLANDINS; LEUKOTRIENES; THROMBOXANES, and HYDROXYEICOSATETRAENOIC ACIDS. They have hormone-like effects mediated by specialized receptors (RECEPTORS, EICOSANOID). .
Receptors, Eicosanoid .
Eicosanoid Receptor .
Receptor, Eicosanoids .
Eicosanoids Receptor .
Receptor, Eicosanoid .
Eicosanoid Receptors .
Cell surface proteins that bind eicosanoids with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Among the eicosanoid receptors are receptors for the prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes. .

Eicosapentaenoic Acid .

omega-3-Eicosapentaenoic Acid .
Acid, Eicosapentanoic .
omega 3 Eicosapentaenoic Acid .
5,8,11,14,17-Eicosapentaenoic Acid .
Important polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fish oils. It serves as the precursor for the prostaglandin-3 and thromboxane-3 families. A diet rich in eicosapentaenoic acid lowers serum lipid concentration, reduces incidence of cardiovascular disorders, prevents platelet aggregation, and inhibits arachidonic acid conversion into the thromboxane-2 and prostaglandin-2 families. .
