Abstract: Abstract Lipid-derived electrophilic molecules are endogenously generated and are causally involved in many pathophysiological effects. Prostaglandin D2, a major cyclooxygenase product in a variety of tissues and cells, readily undergoes dehydration to yield the J-series PGs such as 15-deoxy-Δ12,14-PGJ2 (15d-PGJ2). Because of the electrophilic α,β-unsaturated ketone moiety present in its cyclopentenone ring, 15d-PGJ2 acts as an endogenous electrophile. 15d-PGJ2 can covalently react via the Micha…
