|Function||[Isoform A]: Non-heme iron-containing dioxygenase that catalyzes the stereo-specific peroxidation of free and esterified polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) generating a spectrum of bioactive lipid mediators (PubMed:9177185, PubMed:10625675, PubMed:12704195, PubMed:17493578, PubMed:18311922, PubMed:24282679, PubMed:10542053, PubMed:24497644) (Probable). Converts arachidonic acid to 15S- hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid/(15S)-HPETE (PubMed:17493578, PubMed:12704195, PubMed:24282679, PubMed:9177185, PubMed:11956198, PubMed:10625675, PubMed:24497644) (Probable). Also acts on linoleic acid to produce 13-hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid/13-HPODE (Probable) (PubMed:10542053, PubMed:27435673). Oxygenates arachidonyl derivatives such as 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) leading to the production and extracellular release of 15-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid glyceryl ester (15-HETE-G) that acts as a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha agonist (PubMed:18311922, PubMed:17493578, PubMed:11956198). Has the ability to efficiently class-switch ALOX5 pro-inflammatory mediators into anti-inflammatory intermediates (PubMed:27145229). In addition to metabolize free PUFAs hydrolyzed from phospholipids, directly oxidizes PUFAs esterified to membrane-bound phospholipids (PubMed:27435673). Has no detectable 8S-lipoxygenase activity on arachidonate but reacts with (8S)-HPETE to produce (8S,15S)-diHPETE (Probable). May regulate progression through the cell cycle and cell proliferation (PubMed:12704195, PubMed:11839751). May also regulate cytokine secretion by macrophages and therefore play a role in the immune response (PubMed:18067895). May also regulate macrophage differentiation into proatherogenic foam cells (PubMed:22912809).|

ALOX15B encodes a member of the lipoxygenase family of structurally related nonheme iron dioxygenases involved in the production of fatty acid hydroperoxides. The encoded protein converts arachidonic acid exclusively to 15S-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid, while metabolizing linoleic acid less effectively. This gene is located in a cluster of related genes and a pseudogene that spans approximately 100 kilobases on the short arm of chromosome 17.
