Plasma concentration of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) derived from cytochrome P450 (CYP)-dependent metabolism of arachidonic acid is increased in women with preeclampsia (PE) as compared to normal pregnancy (N), and is even higher in fetal plasma (Herse et al. Circulation 2012, Jiang et al. Am J Hypertens 2013). We hypothesized that differences in EET synthesis or metabolism in the feto-placental unit underlie the observed differences in circulating EETs.

Abstract

Plasma concentration of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) derived from cytochrome P450 (CYP)-dependent metabolism of arachidonic acid is increased in women with preeclampsia (PE) as compared to normal pregnancy (N), and is even higher in fetal plasma (Herse et al. Circulation 2012, Jiang et al. Am J Hypertens 2013). We hypothesized that differences in EET synthesis or metabolism in the feto-placental unit underlie the observed differences in circulating EETs.
