Abstract

A main product (PII) transformed from arachidonic acid in carrageenin-induced granuloma in rats was structurally analysed. PII was converted to a more polar substance by the reduction of sodium borohydride. According to the analysis of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, its structure was speculated to be 9α,11α,15α-trihydroxy-6-oxo-prostenoic acid.
