In yeast two-hybrid system, rat 12-lipoxygenase (12-LO) bound to complete (390 amino acids) or the Nterminus truncated form of human p47 phox, but not to the C-terminus truncated form (residues 1-286). When glutathione S-transferase fused human p47phox was added to an in vitro 12-LO enzyme activity assay, formation of 12- hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid was reduced significantly compared to the C-terminus truncated form. These results indicate that C-terminus of p47phox is important for its interaction to rat 12-LO.
