Empowerment of 15-lipoxygenase catalytic competence in selective oxidation of membrane ETE-PE to ferroptotic death signals, HpETE-PE.
J. Am. Chem. Soc. 140, 17835-17839 (2018)
sn2-15-Hydroperoxy-eicasotetraenoyl-phosphatidylethanolamines (sn2-15-HpETE-PE) generated by mammalian 15-lipoxygenase/phosphatidylethanolamine binding protein-1 (15-LO/PEBP1) complex is a death signal in a recently identified type of programmed cell demise, ferroptosis. How the enzymatic complex selects sn2-ETE-PE as the substrate among 1 of similar to 100 total oxidizable membrane PUFA phospholipids is a central, yet unresolved question. To unearth the highly selective and specific mechanisms of catalytic competence, we used a combination of redox lipidomics, mutational and computational structural analysis to show they stem from (i) reactivity toward readily accessible hexagonally organized membrane sn2-ETE-PEs, (ii) relative preponderance of sn2-ETE-PE species vs other sn2-ETE-PLs, and (iii) allosteric modification of the enzyme in the complex with PEBP1. This emphasizes the role of enzymatic vs random stochastic free radical reactions in ferroptotic death signaling.
