The effects of 13-hydroperoxyoctadecadienoic acid (13-HPODE) on the cytosolic or microsomal acyl-CoA hydrolase (ACH) activity in rabbit kidney medulla and on the ACH-mediated prostaglandin (PG) formation from arachidonoyl-CoA (AA-CoA) were examined. 13-HPODE (10, 20, and 50 microM) had no effect on the cytosolic ACH activity but significantly inhibited the activity of the microsomal enzyme (43-57% inhibition). PG formation was measured as follows: AA-CoA (20 nmol) was preincubated with the cytosolic or microsomal fraction (as the source of ACH) in the presence or absence of 13-HPODE for 5 min at 37 degrees C, followed by incubation with the microsomal fraction (as the source of PG-synthesizing enzymes), hydroquinone and reduced glutathione for 5 min at 37 degrees C, and the PGs formed were measured by HPLC, with use of 9-anthryldiazomethane for derivatization. 13-HPODE reduced the PG formation when the microsomal fraction, but not the cytosolic fraction, was used as the source of ACH (10, 20, and 50 microM; 28-55% inhibition). These results suggest that 13-HPODE may modulate PG levels in rabbit kidney medulla by inhibiting the microsomal ACH activity.
