  • RvE1

General information

  • Resolvin E1 is potent agonists for resolution of inflamed tissues. [1]
  • Resolvin E1 act directly on the migration of neutrophils to attenuate transendothelial migration. [2]
  • Resolvin E1 binds to LTB(4) receptor 1 (BLT1) as a partial agonist, which served as a local damper of BLT1 signals on leukocytes along with other receptors,to mediate the resolution of inflammation. [3]
  • The conversion of RvE1 to the oxo product causess the RvE1 inactivation, this mode is a useful tool to evaluate the actions of RvE1 in complex disease models. [4]
  • RvE1 is a therapeutic agent in an in vivo leukocyte- and osteoclast-mediated inflammatory disease, it acts as a modulator of the inflammatory response shifting the response to more rapid resolution and effectively preventing the chronic phase. [5]
