Linoleic acid oxidation by 12-lipoxygenase from porcine leukocytes has been studied as affected by linoleyl-hydroxamic acid. Linoleyl-hydroxamic acid has been found to be an effective inhibitor of porcine leucocyte 12-lipoxygenase. Aerobic preincubation of 12-lipoxygenase with 0, 1-6 μM of linoleyl-hydroxamic acid led to a time- and dose-dependent inhibition of the enzyme. The inhibitor's concentration able to induce a 50% loss of the enzyme activity with and without 15-min preincubation were 3,5 and 0,65 μM, respectively. Experimental results obeyed a kinetic scheme, which supposed 2 extra substrate molecules bounding with the enzyme-substrate complex in the presence of linoleyl-hydroxamic acid.
