ALOX15 encodes the human gene, Arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase. It may also be known as: 15-LOX; 15-LOX-1; 12/15-lipoxygenase; Arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, leukocyte-type; 12-LOX; Arachidonate omega-6 lipoxygenase; 15LOX-1. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 662 and a mass of 74.8 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. ALOX15 is a member of the Lipoxygenase family. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat.
