The title autacoids and acetylenic analogs were conveniently prepared from 2-deoxy-D-ribose via Barton deoxygenation, cuprate coupling, and Wittig homologation. 12(R)-HETrE, but not the 12(S)-isomer, significantly stimulated microvessel endothelial cell proliferation and proto-oncogene mRNA levels at sub-nano to picomolar concentrations. A high affinity binding site for 12(R)-HETrE was detected on microvessle endothelial cells.
