    Included Quiz Questions

    1. They are derived from arachidonic acid
    2. They are precursors of eicosanoids
    3. They are broken down by cyclooxygenases
    4. They have synthesis stimulated by aspirin and NSAIDs
    1. Leukotrienes
    2. Prostaglandins
    3. Thromboxanes
    4. Arachidonic acid
    5. Taurocholic acid
    1. The prostaglandins are strong endocrine hormones produced by the pituitary gland
    2. Leukotrienes are synthesized from arachidonic acid via a linear pathway and plays an important role in inflammatory response and histamine production
    3. Prostaglandins act as powerful, locally acting vasodilators, and inhibit the aggregation of blood platelets
    4. The enzyme cyclooxygenase mediates the conversion of the arachidonic acid to prostaglandins
    5. Thromboxanes molecules play an important role in the vasoconstriction and blood clotting
